Fredon Elementary School’s sixth grade student, Paulie Tigue, was recognized on March 22, 2012 at the Sussex County School Counselor’s Association Middle School Caring Student Award.  This award is given to an eighth grade or sixth grade student who is respectful of others, displays caring through volunteering, displays helpfulness without being asked, demonstrates a kind and compassionate attitude, values people who are different, is cheerful and optimistic, and is supportive of others.

Paulie is invaluable to Fredon Elementary School, and was recommended by nearly every staff member.  Paulie is a member of 4H, volleyball, basketball, and football; and spends his weekends volunteering at roadside cleanups, helping out on his farm, or building community playgrounds.  His true passion is go-cart and racecar driving, and he hopes to be the next Dale Earnhardt Junior.  In fact, when he does encounter fame and wealth by racing cars, Paulie describes he: “… would definitely give a lot of [his wealth] to a cancer charity.  And I would buy a corvette for my dad like has always wanted!”  Paulie was thrilled to receive this award, and he truly deserves this accomplishment.  He is an inspiration to every person he encounters.
