Principal Sharon Miller presented awards for ‘perfect attendance,’ ‘accelerated reading,’ ‘academics,’ and ‘hard work.’Two special awards were given to the 4 young ladies who created the ‘Coins for Cops’ Fundraiser. The ladies raised over $1,000 to help out Michigan State Police and their fallen officers.Each young lady, along with Hinks Elementary received the highest honor from Governor, Rick Snyder, and also Congressman, Jack Bergman. ‘Coins for Cops’ Creator, Lilly Gembel said she was shocked but hopes her campaign influences her peers.“It feels good to be recognized for that. I hope that knowing that I can be success that others can be too,” Gembel said.She is currently working on her next campaign, which includes raising money for homeless Veterans, and a homeless Native American project. 4th Grade Teacher, Matthew Byce said it’s amazing to see all students succeed.“Students that come in every single day and try their hardest, having perfect attendance that’s really impressive to us, and something that we’re really proud of,” Byce said.Although they may be the smallest elementary school in Alpena Public Schools, they sure are mighty and do fly to great heights.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: Awards Day, Coins for Cops, Hinks ElementaryContinue ReadingPrevious Alpena County Library Celebrates 50th Anniversary with a GalaNext MidMichigan Medical Center- Alpena Recognized for Excellencelast_img read more
