Franxman and Tillett honored as PCHS Class of 2018 Good Citizens
Pendleton County High School staff honors a male and female member of each graduating class with the Good Citizen Award.
Amelia Franxman and Alex Tillett were chosen by the staff for this year’s honor.
Franxman is the daughter of Jeff and Marie Franxman and will be attending the University of Louisville to major in bioengineering and continue through medical school.
“It is truly an honor to receive an award that is voted on by the faculty of the school, especially among the great candidates that were on the ballot with me,” said Franxman. “I am glad that I have made a positive impact on those around me and want to thank all of the teachers and staff that have supported me through my years at PCHS.”
Tillett is the son of Randy and Vilma Tillett and will be attending Northern Kentucky University and majoring in business.
“It’s an honor to receive such a prestigious award,” he said.
The PCHS staff select based on dependability, cooperativeness, friendliness, courtesy, leadership and patriotism. They need to show readiness to accept responsibility, attempt to work to their full potential, are accepted by their peers, show a positive attitude towards the staff and administration and take part in extracurricular activities.
“These two students exemplify these qualities,” said Senior Class Sponsor Julie Hart. “They are strong leaders who are compassionate and will be successful on whatever path they travel.”
Fourteen females were nominated and seventeen males.
