Each year, all Frederick County Public Schools select a student representative to be honored at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration. The student is nominated for embodying the characteristics of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This year, Thurmont Primary School is proud to recognize second-grade student, Evan Laird (pictured right), as its award recipient.
Evan comes to school each and every day ready to build his brain, heart, and body power. He works hard in all that he does. If there is something he doesn’t understand, he asks questions to make sure he is meeting the learning targets. Evan is extremely thoughtful and includes others in games and activities throughout the day and at recess. He is responsible with completing his work and making sure he is putting forth his best effort with all his assignments. He consistently uses his manners with adults throughout the building. Evan easily exhibits all the pillars of good character and leadership qualities that are characteristic of Dr. King.
Thurmont Primary School honored and celebrated Evan, alongside all other FCPS nominees, at a celebration on Thursday, January 9, 2020, at TJ High School.
