North Middle School Student Earns Prestigious Community Award

Breanna RemigioStudents at North Middle School Health Sciences and Technology Campus have a knack for caring about their community. Over the past several years, Prudential has recognized a few Polar Bears for their commitment to community service and volunteerism through its Spirit of Community Awards program.

Prudential has again come knocking, this time honoring eighth-grade student Breanna Remigio as a 2017 State Honoree for Colorado. 

According to the award's website, Remigio helps out at North in a variety of ways that have a positive impact on teachers, staff, students and the community. Her spirit of service began during her sixth-grade year and has continued thus far. She has volunteered her time to help in various places around North, including the school library and office, and she has helped out during parent-teacher conferences. Remigio is also active in community events like coat drives and other initiatives to help people in need. 

“I really like helping people,” she said. “When I help people, I feel very rewarded.”

As part of her reward, Remigio will earn a $1,000 scholarship, an engraved silver medallion as well as an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C. in May for the national recognition events. While in D.C., she will compete with more than 100 students nationwide for the National Honoree designation. 

APS congratulates Remigio on her incredible accomplishment! Her work exemplifies the APS 2020 core belief that students take an active and ongoing responsibility for their learning
