   More than 40 Homer Junior High School students were honored Thursday (April 21) for showing exemplary character.

Each semester, the school’s teams of teachers reach consensus and nominate about 10 students per team.
“The purpose is to encourage students to continue to act with integrity and to recognize those who stand out for doing so,” said Doornbos.
Each student received a certificate after enjoying a hot meal of French toast, scrambled eggs, hash browns, bacon and sausage.
“Congratulations to all of you,” Doornbos told the students. “Keep up the good work.”
