Alton Barber Selected for Hoover Uncommon Student Award
Here at PVCSD, our students are very well known for accomplishing many things, in and out of the classroom. Today, we would like to take time to congratulate Alton Barber for being selected as a Hoover Uncommon Student earlier this month!
 
To participate in the Uncommon Student Awards Program, students applied as high school juniors in March. The Foundation then selected 15 finalists from across Iowa to participate, where they would each develop a philanthropic program of their own design and continue to work on it over the summer.
 
Each student was awarded $1,500 for their efforts. Three were selected by a panel of judges for an additional $5,000 scholarship award and our very own Alton Barber was one of the three!
 
His project was titled, ‘Big Blue World.’ “My program gives students in second through sixth grades with learning differences a chance to participate in FIRST robotics at the same level as any other team,” Barber said. “My goal was for the students to have fun and get exposure to some basic robotics principles. Intense competition was not our goal, and we all got a lot out of the experience!” he added.
 
PVCSD is proud and impressed, Alton! Well done!
