The proposed Ripon Tribe Award is designed to celebrate that special nature of the student/teacher/staff relationship.
At Monday’s 7 p.m. meeting in City of Ripon Council Chambers, 259 N. Wilma Ave., the Ripon Unified school board will look to approve this prestigious medallion honoring those students in the Ripon High Class of 2017.
The Tribe Award calls for recognizing highest performing or most improved student. He or she must be a joy to have in class, eager to learn, exhibit great character and sportsmanship.
Plans call for each staff member, teacher or coach to select one student based on the aforementioned criteria.
Those selected would receive the award during a 6:30 p.m. ceremony planned for April 25 in the RHS North Gym.
