The following students were nominated and selected as the February 2024 Tiger PRIDE Champions: 


Aiden Fisher

Lebanon High School— Aiden Fisher
Nominated by Mr. Gee and Ms. Becker

Aiden is a student who keeps it real. I could always count on him to be engaged in class, to vocalize what he really thinks, and to allow himself to be vulnerable to trust the class with his thoughts and feelings. He also demonstrates great wisdom and relies on that to guide his choices. Aiden is a learner who doesn’t just want to please the teacher; he wants to change the world and make it better. He would rather wrestle for progress than sit in complacency. He would rather take a risk than play it safe. Because of that, he is a joy to teach and is a gift to the classroom. When Aiden is in my class, it makes me want to be a better teacher.


Gabby Deakins

Lebanon High School— Gabby Deakins
Nominated by Mr. Gee and Mrs. McFauls 

Gabby is a powerhouse of a student! She is academically driven and is passionate about working hard to succeed at new things. Gabby is a leader inside and outside the classroom. She is passionate about building her skills in welding and the agricultural industry. Gabby is an outstanding student and strives to achieve any task that is thrown her way!


Zoe Dibner

Zoe is a tremendous young lady who is a talented dancer. During the month of December she was gone several times for rehearsals for the Nutcracker. Zoe always made sure to have her work completed for class and still did extremely well on tests/quizzes and assignments. Team SWAG can always count on Zoe to be a quiet leader and have a smile on her face! Great job Zoe!


Garrett Adams

Lebanon Middle School— Garrett Adams
Nominated by Team Bulldog

Garrett is always exemplifying PRIDE inside and outside the classroom. Garrett is constantly offering to lend a hand to his peers and teachers.

Theo's unwavering commitment to the 7 Habits is truly commendable.

Theo's embodiment of thinking win-win, seeking first to understand, and sharpening the saw not only fosters personal growth but also creates a positive classroom environment. His ability to synergize with others reflects in both his work and the collaborative spirit he brings to the team. Recognizing Theo with the PRIDE award is a well-deserved acknowledgment of his exceptional contributions and positive influence.
