Fosse, a first-grader, is the son of Randi Fosse.
His teacher, Martha Lamb, said Fosse was chosen, in part, because he is a “leader” in the class.
“Julian is a very bright young man, and insightful beyond his years. While he is a leader in our class both academically and socially, Julian is also very respectful of other students’ learning opportunities and never deprives them of having thinking time about lessons or questions,” Lamb wrote in her nomination. “When Julian notices problems he humbly and quietly reports them, or takes care of the problem himself, never drawing attention to offenders out of respect for other’s feelings. Julian remains cheerful in all situations, eager to be a diplomat when social issues arise. Julian’s thoughtful flexibility in choosing a partner, or arranging a small learning group, has more than once offset a problem situation from ensuing. I recognize and appreciate Julian’s friendly and helpful attitude in our class.”
Moab Mayor Dave Sakrison and the Moab City Council presented the award to Fosse at the March 25 city council meeting.
The HMK Students of the Month are selected by the faculty and staff of the school based on their all-around citizenship and their involvement within their school. The city of Moab presents the award as part of an ongoing effort to foster and recognize the contributions of young people within the community in practicing good citizenship.
