Trumansburg sophomore Skye Georgiadis recently won the Service Above Self award offered by the Trumansburg Rotary. 

This monthly award goes to students who are selfless in their community work. In particular, Skye won for her work with the "Story Slam," a community event she is organizing. I thought this would be a great way to help her get more traction and community involvement in the project!

Trumansburg English Teacher Rebecca Czajkowski, who taught Skye last year, put Skye’s name in the nomination hat.

Czajkowski said:

“Skye is a formidable student, and a social force to be reckoned with. While I had the opportunity to teach her English 9 course last year, I’m nominating Sky this year because I’ve seen nothing but growth from an already positive presence in our community. 

Beyond her driving efforts in clubs like Femtastics and our Global Humanism group, Skye has also taken initiative with the resources our STEAM program has to offer, organizing from scratch a “Story Slam,” in which she aims to enable community members to construct their own narratives to present to others in a culminating event.

My goal in nominating Skye is to recognize and praise her efforts, highlighting them as a model for other high school-aged students. In a post-pandemic academic environment, it is becoming increasingly rare to see the drive, autonomy, and passion that a student like Skye has for her community work.”

Congratulations to Skye!
