Call for Nominations: Marion Patch to Recognize Students in New Feature Called Class Act

Marion Patch will be recognizing students in the Linn-Mar and Marion Independent school districts for their achievements.

For many, school is about self-discovery.

Many find the upper limits to their abilities and try to find a place in a world that can be both exciting and frightening.

Marion Patch will be recognizing students in the and  school districts whose hard work and concerted effort in any area shows them reaching towards their potential.

We'll do so by interviewing these students to try to learn how they achieve, how they see themselves and how they see the world around them.

More importantly, we are writing to ask you to start thinking of the students you know that you feel are deserving of recognition.

Remember, they don't necessarily have to have gone to a state competition, earned a perfect GPA or have been crowned be prom king or queen. All we need is for you to tell us who they are and why you believe they deserve to be recognized. You can nominate them for something big or small, but it should be genuine.

So, if anyone comes to mind, feel free to leave their names in the comments, or send me an email at scott.raynor@patch.com.
