The Carson City School District took time at the School Board meeting on Tuesday night to recognize 22 students with the “Distinguished Student Award.”

The student winners were selected by administrators and recognized in pairs from their respective schools as having specific qualities, skills and characteristics that distinguished them.

The award defines the term ‘distinguished’ as something special in a person that can be recognized or identified from others by unique features or characteristics. The word implies any subtle or small differences that are good or honorable that sets one person apart from others. Winners of this award may be identified as good scholars, helpful, on-time, nice, obeying the rules and protecting others.

“The students being recognized have demonstrated qualities and characteristics that are significantly different and honorable from their peers,” Carson City School District superintendent Richard Stokes said. “Each of these winners retain a certain moxie that cannot be tested or measured in the classroom but is evidenced in their day-to-day actions and overall likeability and continual happy attitude.”
