This month’s National Renaissance Student of the Month is Gracie Price from Brazoswood High School, TX. Nominator Rita Pintavalle writes:
Gracie is our Student Body President, a Varsity golfer and a strong leader. She serves on multiple committees for the campus and the district where she ensures the student perspective has a voice. Gracie worked diligently with all clubs and organizations this year to have a community carnival. It was her dream to have an event where everyone had representation, were able to use it as a fundraiser for their group, and provide community outreach. Her positivity and inclusivity is what makes events like this a huge success. She helps lead our Renaissance committee to build a positive campus culture of Buccaneer Pride through thoughtful planning and consensus. One of her favorite quotes is ‘Use kindness like confetti, sprinkle it everywhere.’
