Two Lebanon High School students have been rewarded for their positive impact they have made within their peers and community. The Citizenship Award, given out each year by LHS Cpl. Matt McPeak, has been given to two students that display characteristics such as selflessness, leadership, and kindness.

Kriti Mistry is one of the recipients chosen this year. Kriti has served four semesters in the special education department at LHS as a peer helper. She has plans on attending aviation school to become an airline pilot.

While also having teachers speaking highly of her great gratitude and the respect she shows towards others, Cpl. McPeak added, “I have never met anyone that participated in what works out to be four different classes from this particular class. She has shared her love in helping the students in any way she could from school work to Special Olympics bowling.”

The second recipient of the Citizenship Award goes to Drew East.

“He is an incredible young man that said he loved playing games with his friends in the Nature and Needs class,” stated Cpl. McPeak. “His teacher described him as a strong leader and motivator with exceptional communication skills.”

Drew plans to study business this fall at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville.

Both students were described as being incredibly kind and humble ambassadors to their peers.
