Vian Elementary students (front row, from left), Jaylynn Callaway and Brody Buttery, were recently recognized by the Vian Board of Education for demonstrating exceptional kindness. During a recent cross-country track meet, Brody was winning his race when he saw a student from another school fall. Brody paused to help the other student and made sure that he was not hurt. Even though Brody stopped, he still placed third in the race. Jaylynn had finished her race, but saw a student from another school struggling to keep going. Jaylynn went out to the other student and ran alongside her, encouraging her to cross the finish line. The board members said they are very proud of these students, and happy to acknowledge their acts of kindness. Board members are (back row, from left), Ken Pack, Joe Paul Simon, James Thornton, John Ford and Jeff Cotner.
