George W. Myers 8th Grade Leadership Award
The George W. Myers 8th Grade Leadership Award is presented each year to an outstanding eighth grader who honors the memory of Mr. Myers, who was Martin Meylin Middle School’s principal for 26 years. The school’s faculty nominates a student based on leadership criteria including leading by example, success in overcoming obstacles, standing up for what is right, striving to be best as a well-rounded person, and generating enthusiasm in others.
This year’s George W. Myers Award recipient is Maggie Joy Swarr, the daughter of Shawn and Katrina Swarr of Lancaster. Throughout her middle school career, Maggie has been recognized as a distinguished honor roll student, a Student of the Month, and a Burrowes Scholar for Family and Consumer Science. She was also a member of the school band, chorus, student council, musical cast, and field hockey and basketball teams.
