The Shining Star Award recognizes a student who has set an exceptionally positive Christ-like example during the school year.
The award recognizes the high value that Shekinah places on displays of outstanding Godly character both on and off-campus. There can be many nominees because students are permitted to nominate any of their peers
who display words, attitudes and actions that have made it easier to also say and do the right thing.
The reason for nomination may have been one memorable incident or it may have been a regular pattern of behavior throughout the entire year. The award does not factor in academic, athletic, or fine arts achievement.
School staff collaborate to read the nomination forms and select a winner for each grade band.
