Discipline ~~ Stands for doing what is asked of you without complaint, hesitation,
Desire ~~~~ Stands for always trying to do your best, regardless of what obstacles
may be thrown your way.
The award is bring presented at this time, because it was felt it would be nice for

with Miss. Nelson. In the future the award will be pressented during the Pierce
High School Fall Sports Banquet.
