14 students from Parkway West High School were nominated the Glory of Missouri awards.

In the early 1920s, 14 virtues were engraved on the Missouri House Chamber walls: knowledge, liberty, equality, law, justice, fraternity, education, progress, honor, truth, virtue, temperance, enterprise and charity. To honor students who embody these virtues, the Glory of Missouri award was created. Many Missouri schools honor this tradition and at West, 14 students are chosen — one for each principle. The recognized seniors will travel to Jefferson City on April 11 to receive plaques for their awards and tour the capitol building.

We interviewed teachers that know these students well but did not necessarily nominate them to find out why they feel these students deserve their awards.

Pronouns: she/her Grade: 11 Years on staff: 3 What was your favorite childhood TV show? Jessie, Victorious, Shake it Up - all of the classics What is your favorite book? It's difficult to pick one, but I would say a classic is always Harry Potter What motivates you? My family and friends are some of the biggest motivations in my life. I always strive to do better to make them proud and try to be even just a fraction of the people they are. Other than that, I would say I self-motivate a lot, because I want to leave a positive impact, however big or small, on the world.
