Friday night we attended the Summerlin awards night and it turned out to be a very special evening.
For the first time Caleb received an academic award and this time he actually received two of them. He received a certificate for Engineering III and for Probability/Statistics Senior.
He also received the First Place Citizenship Award for community service.
But the big surprise of the evening was when they announced a new award which was inspired by Caleb’s commitment to community service. This new award is the Geraldine O. Watson Award. Ms. Watson is a retired educator who has continued to be involved in the schools and her community. There will be one large plaque mounted at the school to which more names can be added but the first entry is Caleb Mathre – 1599 hours. Caleb also received an additional smaller plaque to take home.
As a parent it was very moving to see him being recognized for this achievement. But I know none of this would have been possible without the his involvement in Camp Fire. They provided not only countless opportunities for service in several areas but they also provided outstanding mentoring and encouragement for Caleb as well. He is looking forward to helping out this summer and hopefully he can be in the inspiration for other Camp Fire youth.
