Two students at Black Fox Elementary School showed exceptional achievement during the 2013-14 school year and were recognized as Black Fox Scholars before school adjourned for the summer.

Students John Willis and Hannah Maupin were two of the students who earned the title of Black Fox Scholars.

The two students had to maintain grades that included only As and Bs, earn 500 points in Accelerated Reader, document over 10 hours of successful math practice, complete a service project, represent model citizenship and have near-perfect school attendance.

Both students also learned about the importance of community service over the course of the school year.

"Whether you're in pre-K or in a senior home, you can help out your community in lots of different ways," Willis wrote in his essay on community service.

Maupin also stressed the importance of serving others.

"Service should be a part of your life in some way,” Maupin wrote. “One service is to be a friend to someone, because you don't know what a person deals with, and it always helps to have a friend to stand by you.”

Both students received medals denoting them as official Black Fox Scholars.
