A fifth grader at Gadsden Elementary School got to take home the honor of Student of the Month.
Thursday, as part of the character counts program, Teriana Ruff was named the Student of the Month.
Ruff was nominated by her teacher, Dr. King, who said Ruff always works hard in the classroom and follows directions, as well as sets examples for other students.
"Terrific and Respect, those are the two main ones that I hope rubs off on people," said Ruff.
"Sometimes students get flack for doing the right thing or going above and beyond and kids may say certain things, but she doesn't care about that and still helps, and it helps me," said Dr. King.
The Six Pillars of Charter are trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship.
