Students Awarded Character Captured Awards

Students Awarded Character Captured AwardsJanuary 12, 2024 - Ten students at Neuwoehner High School were recognized during a school-wide assembly for demonstrating creativity, encouragement, gratefulness, flexibility, compassion, and connections. These were the six main areas of focus for students during the first semester of the 2023-24 school year. 

“Congratulations to our incredible Tigers who have been awarded for first semester character capture awards,” said Bridget Duke, Neuwoehner assistant principal. “These students modeled good character traits and we are so proud of them.”

Teachers and staff from each of the school’s learning communities chose students to award based on their growth and willingness to go above and beyond in the six areas. 

“Last year, we voted on new character words for the 2023-24 school year,” said Kyla Yount, Neuwoehner special education teacher. “Students and staff chose words from a list and we narrowed it down to the top 10. We focus on a few new character words each month. It helps the students build connections and expand on character words from previous years.”

Students who received an award include: 

  • TJ Hayes - Learning Community 1-A 

  • Riley Randazzo - Learning Community 1-B

  • Alex Wiggins - Learning Community 2

  • Gideon Greene - Learning Community 3

  • Tommy Pottroff - Learning Community 4

  • Courtney Williams - Learning Community 1-A

  • Matt Frobish - Learning Community 1-B

  • Torrie Townsell - Learning Community 2

  • Timothy Lightner - Learning Community 3

The awards ceremony also highlighted service projects that each learning community has been working on. Some of the projects included decorating thank you cards for seniors, collecting new socks for the homeless, and making dog biscuits. Proceeds from the dog biscuit sales were donated to Stray Rescue of St. Louis.
