Ezra Heard

Ezra Heard has demonstrated tremendous growth at SSD’s South Technical High School in the web and computer programming major, according to SSD teacher Sheree Borcherding, who nominated Ezra for the Rosemary Zander Award.

Formerly in a small self-contained classroom, Ezra’s drive to become self-sufficient has fueled his determination to become independent.

“He has a very analytical mind that likes to be challenged,” said Borcherding. “He leaves no problem unsolved, and his dedication and positive attitude have propelled his success.”

Ezra and another student recently placed second at the district-level competition at the SkillsUSA competition in web design. They went on to compete with other students from Missouri. He also has attended several leadership workshops and brought his new skills back to the classroom.

“He is a true leader,” said Borcherding. “In every activity, he exudes enthusiasm, professionalism and a positive attitude. Ezra is an outstanding example of determination and will succeed in whatever he attempts.”
