Plainville High distributes ‘Student Rocks Award’



Plainville High School seniors Michael Haddad and Joseph Rossi are the recipients of the second semester Student Rocks Award. Established by three teachers in 2010, the award is a way to honor students who “do the right thing” every day without looking for acknowledgement. Once a semester, teachers nominate and then vote for two students they believe are worthy of this award.

Haddad and Rossi were nominated multiple times this year, and several faculty and staff members shared comments about the honorees.

“Michael Haddad is one of the most genuine and respectful student-athletes we have had at Plainville High School. Mike embodies what every teammate should be. He is always willing to go the extra mile to help his teammates and coaches and never looks for any type of individual recognition.”
 – coach Tim Shea

“I had the pleasure of having Joe as a student in two of my classes over the last four years and it has been truly an honor to have had him in class. He is beyond exceptionally bright and hardworking, no matter the task presented.”
– faculty member Stephanie Aresco

“Michael is honestly one of those nice kids that, as teachers, we look forward to working with in our class every day. I couldn’t be happier for him, as he truly epitomizes what the Student Rocks Award stands for.”
– faculty member John Girard

Haddad and Rossi were honored June 1 during a high school faculty meeting.

“The Student Rocks Award is one of the most prestigious, and in my opinion, best awards a student can earn at PHS,” Plainville High School Principal Carl Johnson said. “It recognizes the impact these students have had on our school culture. To be selected by our teachers in recognition that you represent the very best of our students is quite the honor. Both of the students honored this semester embody what we hope for from all of our Blue Devils at PHS.”
