May 25, 2016 – Paul L. Cato Middle School honored students, teachers, and staff at their second annual Cavalier of the Year Awards held in May.
“This is an opportunity for our teachers and staff at Cato to be able to recognize and celebrate the talents, hard work, and accomplishments of our students,” said Mike Havens, Principal.
School officials recognized nominees for the 2015-2016 school year, and then awarded the recipients of the teacher, classified employee, and student of the year.
“I feel very proud of myself. I worked hard during the year to obtain this recognition,” said Zeke Armijo, Student of the Year.
“We started from scratch with no musical library or instruments,” said Daniel Hernandez, teacher of Instrumental Music, who received the Teacher of the Year Recognition. “Now we have a group of over 190 students at all grade levels. Music class is a success in Cato Middle School.”
The goal of the event is to recognize those that have demonstrated outstanding character and integrity throughout the school year. Families and school staff celebrated the event with a breakfast awards ceremony.
The Cavaliers of the Year are as follows:
