Clayton Brookins

Oasis Middle School (tie)

Clayton and his friend Reagan were taking turns swimming underwater to see how far they could go. Clayton was observing Reagan swimming when he noticed his friend's body language change. Clayton pulled Reagan out of the water and called for Reagan's parents to come. It appears that Reagan had fainted in the pool. If it were not for Clayton, he may have drowned.

Seth Denise 9th Grade,

Mariner High School (tie)

Seth was eating breakfast in the cafeteria of Mariner High School. He noticed another student who appeared to be choking, immediately went over to the student and performed the Heimlich Maneuver, which dislodged the piece of food from the student's throat.

Anthony Sierra-Cervantes - 6th Grade,

St. Andrew's Catholic School (tie)

Anthony went to the school counselor because he was concerned about the welfare of a fellow classmate. He showed the counselor several email messages he had received from his friend. The emails clearly expressed thoughts of suicide. Anthony was instrumental in getting this student the help needed in dealing with a conflicted home environment. He is a true role model and a great friend.

Jonathan Dallacosta - 8th Grade,

Jonathan is a Challenger Middle School student who mentors at Patriot Elementary. He assists a first grade teacher by setting up lunch in the cafeteria every day. He has great rapport with the first graders and is always helpful, kind and respectful.
