I think that the program is great and I saw it motivate students in my high school first hand. A handful of my peers kept their attendance record spotless with the knowledge of this award and that is no easy feat for a senior! It was also a great reward for kids who worked extremely hard whether in maintaining a high Q.P.A. or boosting one up or even helping out in their community.
