Dear Mrs. Slaton…

Jaiden Herald plans to attend University of Indianapolis, where she will major in business administration and management in the fall.

We were prompted to explain our nominee’s influence on our academic success, but it is nearly impossible to limit Mrs. Slaton’s impact to that of just academics. Undoubtedly, she has influenced me academically, but, in addition, she has influenced me as a person. From the moment I met her she has been a model of grace, intelligence, kindness, and leadership. She has always been someone that I had the utmost respect for. Mrs. Slaton and frequently jokes that we are the same person. Anyone that knows her would understand what a compliment that is. I hope to be half the person she is. 

Mrs. Slaton, 

Thank you for treating me like one your own and for supporting me in everything I do. You never failed to take an interest in anything and everything I was doing. Thank you for seeing the best in me and challenging me to continuously be better. I am grateful for every paper you took the time to proofread and for every word of guidance as an academic bowl coach. You spend a lot of time working behind the scenes to ensure that SCSD2 students and staff have the resources they need to succeed. Please know your efforts and dedication are appreciated and noticed. I am grateful for your tireless work and dedication to everything you do. Thank you for modeling leadership and dedication on a daily basis. As a result of your example, I truly believe I will be leaving Scottsburg not only a stronger student but a stronger person. I am forever grateful for our relationship. I will undoubtedly miss seeing you nearly every day this fall. 

Love always, 

Jaiden
