Why was student nominated? "Huxley entered first grade as a kind boy ready to try anything put in front of him," said his teacher, Robyn Waldron. "Due to this hard work, his reading, writing, and math have soared. He is a leader in the class for his work effort but also for his personality. He is kind, helpful, and very observant. The other students look up to him and Huxley leads them in a positive direction every time. I am so proud to call Huxley part of my team, Team Waldron!"
