Bharat Koirala, an eighth-grade student at Winton Woods Middle School, is using his actions to show his teacher and classmates what trustworthiness is all about. His Assistant Principal Adib Dixon chose him to be honored with the Kiwanis Character is Key Award for Trustworthiness. “Bharat is a Warrior-Scholar, engaged in honors courses,” said Dixon. “His teachers trust him to be prepared for class, persevere through difficult projects and learning activities. He rises to the occasion daily. He embodies trustworthiness in his behaviors.”
Dixon says Koirala models his trustworthiness in a multitude of measures. “Regarding athletics, his coach entrusted him with the responsibility of captaining the Winton Woods Middle School’s boys soccer team, in which he did with grace and composure. Bharat is an example of trust, respect, and responsibility, in and out of the classroom. That is why we have nominated Bharat Koirala for the Kiwanis Character is Key Award.”
Koirala was honored at the district’s February board of education meeting.
