The award is presented to one student at each Williamson County school. Will, 11, attends Pearre Creek Elementary School. “Will is one of the hardest working students in the fifth grade,” said Pearre Creek Teacher Jason Dean.
“He always has a positive attitude; is a friend to all; encourages others to do the right thing; and is a joy to have in class.”
Will began attending Pearre Creek when it opened in 2010 and says his two favorite things about the school are his friends and the teachers. He also says his preferred subject is reading. “I like reading because it can take you to a different place just by opening up a book,” said Will. “I don’t really have a favorite type of book. I like them all.” When he’s not reading or doing homework, Will likes to play outside with his twin brother, Jack, and his younger brother, Sam.
Will especially enjoys playing soccer and football and says he’d like to play football for Hillsboro in the fall. In the meantime, Will says he plans to finish the school year strong by doing his best in class each and every day.
“I think it’s important to do well in school,” said Will. “That way, you can go to a good college and have a good life.” Will is the son of Scott and Beth Ezell of Franklin, Tenn.
