William Chrisman High School wins Kindest KC award
INDEPENDENCE, Mo. –The 2013 Kindest Kansas Citian Awards have been announced and William Chrisman High School was given the honor of Kindest School.
Tim Dial, English teacher at William Chrisman High School, filled out the application for the award, which includes schools in the KC metro and surrounding areas.
In the application Dial focused on how the school promotes kindness, opportunities for students to demonstrate responsibility, and community involvement. He spotlighted the building’s inclusive environment, creating an atmosphere where all students feel they have a group they can belong to. He showed how supportive students and staff are of each other and their programs, and highlighted the dramatic decrease in discipline issues over the past year.
“It is nice to see Chrisman receive recognition for the great things we do naturally in our building and the type of environment we strive to create within our walls. These are the things which often go unnoticed as part of our daily routine, but this award helps validate what we are doing at Chrisman.” Dial said.
The award will be presented to principal Mike Becker at a dinner banquet in downtown Kansas City on April 26.
