Anyway this post is a congratulatory one for my little sister Shivani dear who is scaling all sorts of heights….*sigh*Wish I had been that good at her age….
Well she received the Teresa Huffman Watters Award May 29 during the Fifth-Grade Moving-Up Ceremony.
Rising sixth-grader SHIVANI AMAR received the Teresa Huffman Watters Award May 29 during the Fifth-Grade Moving-Up Ceremony. “For 23 years, Terri Watters was a teacher at the Lower School, and during this time, she affected the lives of many students by shaping their intellectual and emotional views of themselves and their surroundings,” said Diane Lumpkin, Lower School assistant principal. “Terri has shaped the futures of not only these children, but of those people who will later touch their lives.” Watters’ parents, Mr. and Mrs. William Huffman, chose to honor her years of service to the Lower School by endowing an award in her name. The award will be presented each year at Commencement to a fifth-grade student who has exhibited the following characteristics: Growth in character which distinguishes him or her from others; Growth in developing self-discipline by being responsible in all areas; Growth in the desire for learning by working beyond expectations; Growth in morals by discerning right from wrong; Growth in friendships by being considerate of all, regardless of their differences; Growth in becoming a solid person and student who should be proud of him or herself. Amar, who has been at Darlington since first grade, was a natural choice, according to her teachers. She has a high academic average, plays tennis, and plays alto saxophone in the Lower School Band. “Shivani is an emerging leader,” said Chris Holloway, instrumental director at the Lower School. “She inspired her fellow band members to do better by her example of taking her instrument home and practicing every night.” “When Shivani first came to Darlington, she was very shy and sweet,” said BeBe Cline, fifth-grade teacher. “She has always been generous and kind with her words. Today, she is self-assured and confident in who she is. We are all so proud of her for being selected as this year’s Teresa Huffman Watters Award recipient.” Amar is the daughter of Drs. Poonam and Amar Singh of Rome.
Really making her parents proud. Way to go dear….never ever stop….Tonnes of love to you
