Sixteen "Most Improved Fifth Graders" were honored by the Metro Fayette Kiwanis at a reception held for their families and teachers.

Among the comments made by their teachers were: He offered all he had to give; she comes every day with a million dollar smile; she is good to ask for help when she needs it; this is his first year in Georgia and he had to play catch-up and did; this is my first fifth grader that I just know will be my first student to enter MIT; a teacher's dream and is always prepared; he has gone from afraid to speak up to volunteering; and faces each day with a new perspective.

One young lady bonded with a classmate who has cerebral palsy. She spent an hour after school each day learning to sign, so she could be of help to her classmate.

The honored students are: Chaz Massar, Braelinn, Logan D. Worley, Brooks, Samra Mitchell, Cleveland, Amanda Loman, Crabapple Lane, Maxwell Tave, Fayetteville Intermediate, Morgan Presley, Huddleston, Aundra "Tre" Miller, Inman, Josephine Nelson, North Fayette, Davis Benefield, Oak Grove, Matt Blevins, Peachtree City, Robert White, Peeples, Alexandria Miller. Robert J. Burch, Lauren Brooks, Sara Harp Minter, Dennis Obregon, Spring Hill, and Grace Andraos, Tyrone Elementary School.

Each student received a $50 United States Savings Bond, and a plaque.

The Metro Fayette Kiwanis meets each Tuesday noon at the IHOP in Fayetteville.
