Congratulations to Friends of Fairview youth volunteer Chase Cooper. Because of his academics and Volunteerism in the commmunity he was invited to join the US World Class Taekwondo leadership team.

“CHASE COOPER. Chase received a special award for caring for the community. In addition to being a great student at his school and within our Taekwondo school, Chase knows and values the importance of caring for the world we live in. During this testing cycle, Chase has volunteered at Woodland Elementary School’s Harvest Festival and has completed a community litter walk. Through his volunteerism in the community, we would like to present Chase with not only a certificate of recognition, but an invitation to become a part of the US World Class Taekwondo Leadership Team.

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR NEWEST COLOR BELTS! Saturday was a wonderful day that the staff of USWC was proud to share with each of you. We are excited to see you in your new belt today! There were several students whom received special recognition at the event that we would like to acknowledge again for their outstanding demonstration of this quarter's testing theme, "I CARE": LOGAN WRIGHT. The first student that was recognized for showing he cares for his family was Logan. He shows he cares daily by doing little things such as making sure his little sister is always safe by grabbing her hand when she crosses the street to showing he cares in big ways. He did this in aiding his mother after she was recovering from surgery. He helped his mother with walking, making sure she was comfortable and, with the assistance of his sister, made sure his mother had what she needed whether it was food, water or an extra pillow to be comfortable. AYDEN ROCK. Our next recipient also has taken care of his family when they needed it most. Both his mother and father were ill and he waited on them hand and foot. He not only shows he cares to his family when times call for it, he does this consistently by being respectful and keeping his room clean. GAVIN LUTTRELL. On his own accord, Mr. Gavin Luttrell has been reading to his younger sister who is 6-years-old every day for 20 to 40 minutes. Gavin was not asked to do this, it was his idea. The kindness Gavin shows to his sister shows that he cares and really exemplifies the spirit of our theme. SAVANNAH HEARD. Savannah was recognized because she had a friend that was being bullied consistently at school. Her friend didn’t ask for help, but Savannah knew she needed to do something. She asked a friend to speak to the bully and the bullying stopped. We are proud of Savannah for finding a solution to a problem she saw that she knew needed to be fixed. RAWLEY PETERSON. This year, after starting taekwondo, he knew he had to show he respected and cared for his education. He as stopped giving up on school work when it gets hard and no matter how long it takes – he finishes his assignments. He has made such improvements he was recognized by his principal with the “Principal’s Pride Award” for making major improvements at school. His school is proud of him and so are we. TRISTAN SANDERSON. Our next outstanding student is showing he cares about school by working hard at something that didn’t come easy to him. Through his hard work in studying, Mr. Tristan Sanderson went from missing most of his spelling words to being named “The most improved” in his class and knowing all of his spelling words. We are proud of you and congratulate Tristan! KONNER SWASEY. Konner received wonderful praise from his teacher at Oliver Elementary School by saying, “Konner comes in every morning and gets his morning work done and is reading to himself every day. He is always listening during lessons and earns the most gold cards from our scouts for his safe, respectful and responsible behavior. He has turned in all of his homework since the beginning of the year and is always on task in class trying his hardest! I am very proud of Konner’s outstanding behavior and the example he sets for all of his peers in the classroom. Konner was selected as an outstanding student at his elementary school and we would now like to acknowledge him as an outstanding student at our school! CHASE COOPER. Chase received a special award for caring for the community. In addition to being a great student at his school and within our Taekwondo school, Chase knows and values the importance of caring for the world we live in. During this testing cycle, Chase has volunteered at Woodland Elementary School’s Harvest Festival and has completed a community litter walk. Through his volunteerism in the community, we would like to present Chase with not only a certificate of recognition, but an invitation to become a part of the US World Class Taekwondo Leadership Team. Chase’s invitation to the Leadership team included a scholarship for Team training valued at nearly $1,000. INSTRUCTOR CLUB. Each of our Outstanding students that were awarded received a nomination for their award, however there was a student that received multiple nominations. This is a student that gives countless hours of their time in exchange for a smile. This student helps trains other students for the simple fact that they want them to be their best. This student does homework late at night so they can be there when needed to help their peers. This student puts in requests at work to be at taekwondo events such as this one. In fact, this isn’t one student – it’s a team of students – its our INSTRUCTOR CLUB STUDENTS. GABE DETLES. This award was selected by the Instruction team of US World Class Taekwondo. The choice was easy. This student has volunteered more hours to helping train other students than any other student has in the history of our volunteer program. He not only helps students individually, he helps our schools in any way he can, whether it is passing out information cards or dressing up as a tiger – or a turtle. Whatever it is he can do to help share taekwondo with others, he will do it. He has been an Instructor Club member since the program started and he now dedicates nearly all of his free time to helping other students succeed in taekwondo. At this point, if you have ever met this student, by now you know who it is. It is a student who rarely gets the recognition he deserves, but today we hope to give him this honor – our 2014 Outstanding Student Award in the area of caring goes to Mr Gabriel Detles.
