In addition to the monthly Citizen of the Month awards, an additional award was presented at the May 2 Morenci Board of Education meeting.
Middle school/high school principal Stephen Philipp presented Kenny Maxfield with a certificate for Most Improved Student.
Philipp said the senior exemplifies “what we hope every student can do with their lives.”
Philipp was new to the district in the current school year, but he said that he’s heard stories about Maxfield’s behavior in the past.
Maxfield has grown tremendously, Philipp said, and now serves as a role model for good behavior to younger students.
Maxfield received a standing ovation from those attending the board meeting.
