Tivy Senior honored with Exceptional Senior Award

Tivy Class of 2020 Senior Bella King was recognized for an Exceptional Senior Award presented by Representative Chip Roy recently. 

Rep. Chip Roy is honored to present Exceptional Senior Awards to outstanding members of the high school Class of 2020.

“Bella King is a breath of fresh air. She is a positive, upbeat kid with a big heart that truly cares for everyone she meets," said Tivy High School Principal Shelby Balser.

"Her voice in this world will make an impact and I look forward to watching her succeed.”

The Exceptional Senior Award (ESA) is presented to stellar seniors across Texas’ 21st Congressional District for the graduating Class of 2020. ESA winners are students that have consistently displayed high levels of character, leadership, integrity, and diligence. These virtues were evident through their philanthropic activities, academic success, and reputations among peers and teachers.  

The Congressman originally planned to present the ESAs in person to the winners. However, COVID-19 created unusual circumstances for the Class of 2020 and put students through extraordinary difficulties. Instead, the ESA certificates were mailed to winners several weeks ago.

Congressman Roy visited with the seniors virtually and offered his congratulations. He encouraged them to choose optimism during this difficult time and remain proud of their achievements. With fine young people like these, Texans have reason to be optimistic about our great State’s future.
