ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WDHN)—You want to be a rock star. On Friday, there were more than 600 young, rock stars in the City of Progress.
Enterprise City School Superintendent, Dr. Zel Thomas, turned the raffle drum, and some seven names of students at Brookwood Elementary School were chosen.
Since the start of the school year, each of the pre-k through sixth graders was
given a rock star slip by school staff for doing well academically, or just helping fellow students and teachers.
Since September, some 21 hundred slips have been presented to the student body. Each of the seven students selected in the raffle had the opportunity to select a prize, which included such things as game consoles.
Brookwood Principal Waller Martin says it’s a time to celebrate kids who
do the right thing. A form of positive reinforcement.
By the way, the school’s foundation paid for the rather expensive presents for the seven young people who are now rock stars.
