More Student Character Counts Winners

Posted: Updated:

Character Counts Award recipients have been chosen.

We met the first four of 13 last night and tonight Emily Medalen introduces us to four more area youth who have also spent this school year staying involved in school and the community.

First, we have Isaac Massey. Isaac is a senior at Bishop Ryan High School, and is student body president.

He is active in sports, school fund raisers, and volunteering at the Red Cross.

And he says it's the small acts of kindness that go the farthest.

(Isaac Massey, Bishop Ryan High School) "Yeah, just being nice to other students - trying to be a good role model. If you see them in the hallway, just give them a 'Hey, how's it going? How's your day going?' Things like that. It goes a long way."

...

Next, we meet McKenna Beeter, an eighth grader at Jim Hill middle school.

McKenna's family has dealt with many challenges in the past few years, including her father receiving a heart transplant.

With her parents often being out of town due to this, she has stepped up and done what she can to help her family.

(McKenna Beeter, Jim Hill Middle School) "I find myself rooted in responsibility. Because I feel that it's really my responsibility to take care of things when my parents are gone. Because they can't always do things when they're out of town."

Chloe Rickards is a senior at Minot High School.

Her family has moved around since she was younger, but Chloe says that staying active in school and extra-curricular activities have helped her make friends wherever she goes, and taught her the importance of including everyone.

(Chloe Rickards, Magic City Campus High School) "Honestly, it's been a very enjoyable experience just being able to see different people and different places. It's just really amazing for me to be able to do. I find myself very lucky just to be able to go everywhere."

Finally, we meet Rhett Pederson, an eighth grader at Erik Ramstad Middle school.

Rhett enjoys being a part of sports, honor society, and volunteering around town.

He says that with such a busy schedule at a young age, being responsible is the most important pillar to him.

(Rhett Pederson, Erik Ramstad Middle School) "I think responsibility is probably the biggest one for me because with all the things I do, responsibility is probably the key one to know what's the right thing, and what's the wrong thing to do."
