Lakes Elementary ‘s Drew Harrier an Example in Excellence

Student has uncanny ability to make others feel good about themselves 

Drew Harrier, 11, is the son of Brian and Christy Harrier and brother to Dean and Wade. Teachers describe Drew as honest and trustworthy, and say he defines the role of a model citizen through his leadership abilities. Drew always puts others first.

“Drew is selfless on the playground and in the classroom,” staff at Lakes Elementary state. He is also known as a hard worker who loves challenges and pushing himself to do his personal best. Drew showcases positive behavior that students around him see on a daily basis.

Drew has an uncanny ability to make others feel good about themselves. He is occasionally a rambunctious student, but also has a calm demeanor. He is respectful of other people’s feelings and property. When Drew was volunteering as a school Safety, another student had an accident. Rather than drawing attention to the problem, Drew handled it discreetly and stayed with the student until the situation was taken care of. The next time he saw the student, he made sure she was okay.

A giving person, Drew helps his mother with younger kids in daycare. He is always willing to lend a hand and is flexible to accommodate any situation. Other students look up to him and enjoy being around him.

Drew is motivated to do what his right because of who he is. His family and how he was raised have instilled in him the virtues of character and integrity.

An avid soccer player and downhill skier, Drew and his brother Dean also collect monarch caterpillars. They love to watch as the caterpillars change into chrysalises and hatch into butterflies. Drew is a true scientist who loves exploring new things. He is also involved in his church youth group and has just started in the junior high youth group. This is a wonderful example of Drew’s ability to fit in with any age group.
