Seven years after his first brain surgeries, grandson Ben has won his school’s top award. Last week, the day before school was out for the summer, Ben was named Mr. Westside in an awards ceremony in which he also received other recognitions. We are so very proud of him!
Ben’s school, Westside Elementary, includes Pre-K through 5th grade. He has attended school there since he was 4 years old in Pre-K, and this year he officially graduated from 5th grade. As part of the graduation ceremony, two students, one boy (Ben) and one girl, were named Mr. and Miss Westside, an honor awarded by the entire faculty and staff of the school. Criteria for the honor included: having been a student in the school since Kindergarten, academic excellence, involvement in extra curricular activities at the school and in the wider community, and excellence in character.
