Quality Kids

Quality Ford presented awards to two students this month at the recent School Board meeting.  Thom and Kristi Hoeflinger, new owners of Quality Ford, presented the awards along with gift cards and other goodies.

From Red River Academic Academy, the Quality Kid of the Month is Jacarvis Speed.  His nomination statement read, ”Jacarvis wasn’t chosen because he is a straight A student. He was chosen because he has started working harder than some straight A students I have had in the past.  Jacarvis might not get the answer right the first time, but he is going to work on it until he gets it right. 

“At the beginning of the year, we watched videos about having a growth mindset and adding wrinkles to our brains. Jacarvis has shown himself to have that growth mindset. He doesn’t give up and he doesn’t compare himself to the rest of the class. 

“Jacarvis is working hard for himself. He is learning to set goals for himself and work towards them every day. I am proud to be part of his process. I look forward to all the growth he is going to make this year, and in the years to come.”

Elijah Murphy from Red River Junior High is the other Quality Kid.  He attends Red River Junior High. His nomination statement read, “From the time that Elijah was in the 6th grade, he has been a leader amongst his peers.  However, this year, that leadership role has changed and he has taken a positive shift toward steering his classmates in the right direction.

“Whether it be on the field or in the classroom, Elijah always tries his best to succeed. He can be found making big plays on the football field, but even bigger plays for his education. In the classroom, he motivates his peers, works with those at his table group, and strives to give his best effort to complete his coursework as well.

“His motivation to do his best and succeed has stood out amongst his peers. I cannot wait to see where that drive will take him in the coming years at Red River. I know that Elijah will do great things and continue to make all of us proud.”
