Senator Fred Akshar visited classrooms in three local schools on Monday to kick-off a new district-wide student recognition program. Each month, Senator Akshar will recognize three or four local students selected by school districts across the 52nd Senate District who have shown great leadership, compassion, school spirit or improvement amongst their peers.
For each student recognized as an “Akshar All-Star” Senator Akshar will present them with a t-shirt, framed certificate and a challenge coin.
On Monday, Senator Akshar recognized Donavin Hamer from Maine-Endwell Middle School, Myleanna Sidelecky from C.R. Weeks Elementary in Windsor and Chuck Huizinger from Harpursville Central High School.
Senator Fred Akshar said, "This is a great opportunity for us to work with school district throughout the 52nd Senate District to recognize outstanding young people who are doing wonderful things in our community. Whether they're in 2nd grade or a senior in high school, we want to bring attention to those students who are making a difference in their own lives and in the lives of those around them.
