Danville High School senior Anajah Perrin has been selected for the Daughters of the American Revolution Good Citizen Award, which "recognizes and rewards individuals who possess the qualities of dependability, service, leadership and patriotism in their homes, schools and communities," according to the DAR website.
This is what Anajah wrote for the award: "Hi my name is Anajah Perrin. I am currently a senior at Danville High School. After high school, I plan to attend college to major in Elementary Education and stay an extra year to get my certification in Moderate and Severe Disabilities. I am currently a peer tutor in Katie Newton's MSD classroom at Danville High School and help in Lisa Denny's kindergarten classroom at Mary G. Hogsett Primary. I love spending every moment with both sets of students. Being able to help and watch these students grow always makes my day better."
She was recommended by Math Interventionist Joel Grosjean, who said, "Anajah is very engaged during class. But I think what sets her apart is that she is willing to lend a hand whenever needed."
He said, "Anajah has been friendly and supportive with the MSD students while still enabling them and teaching them to engage with me as a teacher — not to answer questions on their behalf."
Danville Schools congratulates Anajah!
