February Tiger PRIDE Champions
Posted by Kristen Scott on 2/15/2022 7:25:00 PM
Lebanon High School—Jazlyn Gramlin
Nominated by LHS Staff
Jazlyn is an exceptional student-athlete at LHS, and she exemplifies all aspects of PRIDE as part of her true character and integrity. While Jazlyn stays busy year-round, the winter months are extra busy as she is a very important member of the cheerleading team and girls' wrestling. Jazlyn recently finished as the state runner up at the Girls Wrestling State Tournament, and has been a key member of our very successful girls wrestling program. More importantly, she does all this in a first-class manner. While coming so close to winning a state championship medal is surely disheartening, Jazlyn was a model of sportsmanship and Tiger PRIDE as she interacted with her opponent and other participants after the championship match. Her actions, even during adversity, show her true character, and our community is better because of Jazlyn's representation of Lebanon High School. It is important to note that Jazlyn is just as committed to PRIDE when the lights are not on and a crowd is not present. Recently there have been two reports of Jazlyn completing special acts of kindness, that, while not public, are definitely noticed. Others witnessed Jazlyn making a point to be welcoming, respectful, and provide true friendship to a student in need at LHS when the student needed noticed the most. During the same time frame, another student had a medical emergency with an extremely bad nose bleed. Jazlyn was a calming influence throughout the situation, summoned help from the nurse, then quickly returned to the student and provided needed assistance until the nurse was able to take over. In all that she does, Jazlyn embodies the ideals of PRIDE as a true servant leader in our school and community. Congratulations Jazlyn for exemplifying what it means to be a Tiger Pride Champion.
Lebanon High School—Alex Juarez
Nominated by LHS Staff
Alex is a tremendous young man who exemplifies what it means to serve others. President Kennedy must have had Alex Juarez in mind when he said in his inaugural address, "ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country". Alex has fulfilled this message as he has genuinely served many people at Lebanon High School without ever asking “what are you going to do for me”. He thrives in the roles he has played as a football manager, cameraman and game commentator for Lebanon basketball. You will often see Alex walking to and from school or school related activities because it is important for him to be part of the Lebanon team. Alex loves sports, and he truly loves being a Lebanon Tiger. He is a friend to all, and models all aspects of PRIDE. While he often supports others behind the scenes, he continually asks himself what can I do for my school and community, not what others are doing for me. Alex works hard in the classroom as a dedicated student, and he selflessly gives his time to make the lives of those around him better. Alex has a friendly, cheerful, and fun-loving personality, and his smile lights up the room. Lebanon High School is a better place because of Alex Juarez and he will be missed when he graduates this May. It is an honor to recognize Alex Juarez as a Tiger PRIDE Champion for LHS.
Lebanon Middle School—Alejandro Bernal-Santos

Chase is a leader in both the classroom and on the athletic field. He is often asked to help other students in class who are struggling or need help.
