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

Jegna Klub and are collaborating with Mayor Garners Office 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 Lance Byers a 5th grade student at Hazel Grove Elementary School in the Kansas City Kansas Public School District. Last year when Lance was in the 4th grade, I would watch his actions and how he interacted with teachers and his peers. I was hoping that I would be his 5th grade teacher, and I am. Lance possess qualities of a strong leader. Lance steps up to the "plate" and go beyond what is asked of him. He helps his classmates, especially when they are struggling academically. Lance classmates voted him unanimously to represent the class on the Student Council. This action shows that his classmates see his ability to lead and persevere. Lance was sick for a week, and when he returned he completed all the work that was left in the folder on his desk without any hesitation. Academically, Lance is a straight "A" student and his reasoning skills are top notch. Lance Byers is going places in life and I can only hope that I am around to witness his greatness. - Nominated by Teacher Wanda Maxwell
