The very first “student of the week” at the Cordillo Program Center is Alfonso Jimenez, Jr. He is a second grade student at IB Elementary School in Hilton Head, and he embodies all of the characteristics that NOC strives for. In addition to working diligently, remaining quiet, and being respectful, Alfonso is extremely conscientious and considerate. Last week during the time in which students are able to use their incentive tickets to “buy” prizes, one of the students became very upset because he did not have enough tickets to buy the prize he wanted. Alfonso saw how upset the student was and gave up all of his own tickets so the student could have the prize he wanted. It is this kind of caring and generous spirit that we hope to see in all of our students. Alfonso was excited to receive a backpack filled with school supplies as his reward for being “student of the week”.
