E.G.O. Jegna Klub Student of the Week

Jegna Klub and are collaborating with Mayor Tyrone Garners Office and The Merc Co+op to help empower youths to become who and what they want. Each week we will recognize a Kindergarten through college student who is not only excelling academically, athletically (not required), behaviorally, and in attendance, but is also not afraid to stand up and out to take the lead in word and action; not only for their future, but for their school and their community!

This week our EGO (Empowerment Grows Opportunities) Jegna Klub Student of the Week is Kevin Zapata Jimenez a 2nd grade student at Quindaro Elementary School in the Kansas City Kansas Public School District. Kevin has excelled this year in creating a positive class environment. He comes to school everyday prepared to learn with a positive attitude. Kevin is always offering his help and shares with everyone he knows. Kevin has been involved in many school activities that have enriched his learning like drama club and giving the morning announcements. He has worked to constantly improve his grades and he takes pride in completing his tasks to the best of his ability. Kevin stays on the college and career level during state testing and understands higher level questions. I don’t think he understands how special he is because he is always trying to support others. Hopefully this will be the encouragement he needs to know he is truly amazing. - Nominated by teacher Angela Clark
