Belleville District 118
Travis enjoys being a good friend at school. So when he realized a fellow student with a disability was having a hard time coping at school, he immediately befriended him. Every morning Travis greets his new friend as he arrives at school, and then plays with him at recess. Even though Travis realizes sometimes the student may reject his help, he continues to find ways to help him have a better day at school. Travis always finds a way to make things more positive for the student.
So today we honor Travis Clifford for doing the right thing. Thanks to his acts of kindness and caring ways, a disabled student who has great difficulties fitting in at school is much happier. Barbara Harnist who nominated him stated, “Travis is a shining example of doing the right thing that we should all strive to do on a daily basis.” Great job, Travis! We are so proud of you.
