FHS nominee announced


Kristyn Royster, a Farragut High School senior, has been nominated to compete in the national Principal’s Leadership Award scholarship program, sponsored by the National Association of Secondary School Principals.

Kristyn’s nomination was announced by FHS principal Michale Reynolds.

One hundred national PLA winners will be chosen this spring to receive a college scholarship ranging from $1,000 to $12,000.

High School principals from across the country were able to nominate one of their student leaders. Nominees were selected based on their leadership skills, participation in service organization and clubs, achievements in the arts and sciences, employment experience and academic record. They also were required to write an essay.

“Every year the nominees for the Principal’s Leadership Award are just phenomenal and Kristyn is no different,” said Gerald N. Tirozzi, executive director, NASSP. “She is an excellent example of what a true student leader embodies and deserves to be commended for her excellence in the classroom and community.”

In recognizing leadership in co-curricular activities as well as academic performance, the PLA scholarship recognizes the importance of a well-rounded education. Co-curricular activities are an essential part of the school curriculum.

While at Farragut High School, Royster has been vice president of Student Council, writing/photography editor for the yearbook, prom committee chairman, DECA treasurer, and a member of the varsity swim team. On the state level, she has received recognition for winning awards in the Student Government Leadership Essay, TASC Leadership All-Star and UTK and newspaper photography competitions.

Kristyn’s community service and volunteerism include work for AAU Junior Olympics, student government service tours, Make-A-Wish fund-raising and working as a lifeguard for an area pool. This fall she plans to attend the University of Ten-nessee, Knoxville to study Electronic Media.
