Collegewood Elementary 5th grader Marco Mendieta was honored as a Super Star Student.

“As a teacher, you get to know a lot of kids. When I learned we got to honor one of our students, I immediately thought of Marco and wrote an email to our staff members,” said   Teacher Kim Horn. The entire Collegewood staff agreed.

“Of all the kids I’ve taught over the years, Marco’s one of those special ones. Marco is my reliable kid,” Horn explained.

When she needed him to help keep track of 27 students during a 4th grade field trip, he did.

During robotics earlier that day when she needed help cleaning up all the wires, he took care of it.

Marco’s that kid that when I retire, I’ll always remember,” she added.

“Marco, our whole staff honors you for your hard work, attitude and resilience. We know you’re going to do great things!” she said.
