The student selected to represent Sherman Elementary is Virginia Arce, Grade 3.
Virginia is a smart and kind Sherman Elementary student. She goes over and beyond to take part in Sherman After School activities and assist others whenever needed. Virginia helped her grandmother last summer with food distribution to Sherman Elementary families that needed supplemental food support.
Virginia consistently chooses to participate in CLC Service Learning Projects. Recently, she took part in the Keep Omaha Beautiful project at Sherman CLC. Virginia, two peers, and a CLC staff member walked the Sherman Elementary neighborhood marking storm drains with an Only Rain Down the Storm Drain stickers. She helped clean out drains at the street level and collected a great deal of trash. She placed information cards on neighbors doors. The cards reminded residents that trash that goes down a storm drain gets washed into local streams and rivers.
Virgina Arce is an example of an outstanding Sherman ELementary CLC student and one that demonstrates care for friends, neighbors and the environment.
