Student receives Akshar All-Star award

Zoom mtg

Congratulations to sophomore Kris Hodge on being selected as an Akshar All-Star!

Kris was nominated by principal Mary Mullock for his hard work and dedication to learning at Tiger Ventures.
Kris is a great example of how Tiger Ventures works, giving students an opportunity to find their talent and passion in and out of the classroom. For Kris, it is woodworking. For TV’s first Seasonal Pop-up Sale, items were made from repurposed materials, including wooden pallets, which Kris used to make Christmas trees, corner shelves and holiday signs. In addition, Kris donated part of the proceeds from the sale to CHOW.

Nick Greco, Tiger Ventures teacher, said, “Kris exemplifies what Tiger Ventures is all about. He's found a place where he feels comfortable learning in a way that best suits him, and he's excelling in his role as a "quiet leader."

Senator Fred Akshar, via ZOOM, along with Mullock, Greco and district leaders, recognized Kris for receiving the Akshar All-Star Award.
