Student of the Week: Ms. Cherchian Recognizes Eighth Grader, Alex Gavrilovic, as He “Leads by Example”

Bernardo Yorba Middle School Student, Alex Gavrilovic, an eighth-grader, was chosen as student of the week for ASB Leadership, selected by Ms. Cherchian.

 

“I was surprised. There were many other eligible people…” Alex mentioned in his response to being chosen in an interview with the Matador Messenger.

 

Ms. Cherchian describes Alex as “the type of person who just might run into a building on fire rather than run out to make sure everyone is safe…Alex leads by example and always acts in good faith.” He has natural qualities of a leader and a “…natural ability to assess a situation and figure out a way to contribute on the spot.”

 

In class, Alex demonstrates “the aforementioned qualities in every task at hand,” and in every project or assignment. He enjoys conducting homeroom activities and the group activities Ms. Cherchian has for the class when they’re not at work.

 

Outside of school, Alex enjoys going to the gym, playing football, and listening to 90s hip-hop and 80s-90s rock music. 

 

Alex never holds back from showing his true colors;  “I believe if more people can do this, we would have a much more colorful and positive world,” Ms. Cherchian states.
