Eponine is a true leader in her school and community. She is often asked to participate in School Panels and Gifted & Talented Panels, and to assist other students because she communicates so eloquently while still showing a caring disposition for others. Eponine is exceptional in her academic excellence and passion for advancement. She is highly gifted and talented, loves to read, is a leader in her church, and donates her time and resources to helping others in need. Eponine never seeks recognition; however, she continues to exemplify the positive academic and social impact attributes this award recognizes so I highly recommend her.
