The book Horton Hears a Who came out in 1954 by Doctor Seuss. The book tells a tale of an elephant who hears something on a speck of dust, and believes that he must keep the tiny speck safe at all costs. It is discovered that the little speck happens to be a little planet, which Horton ends up saving and the motto of the mayor is "a person's a person no matter how small."
I have chosen to call the name of this award the Horton Award because it is the little things that a person does throughout the day that can really make a difference. Today's certificate was awarded to Sam for his leadership in group discussions, participation, and listening skills. Great job Sam! Your efforts do not go unnoticed!
