Sixth Grade Students and Teachers at Pioneer Middle School honored with Kids Character Award

City Commission honored Mrs. Sandra Lopez- Gallardo, a sixth grade Language Arts teacher at Pioneer Middle School, and her students with the Kids of Character Award on Feb. 14th. Before the holiday break, 11-year-old Lucia Eves suffered from stroke-like symptoms during class. During that moment, all 21 students knew exactly what to do during this emergency. Mrs. Lopez-Gallardo has a “best practice rule” for the classroom. All the students got up and left the classroom quickly until help arrived. This helps avoid having this medical emergency end up on Tik Tok or Instagram. Veronica Garza, office personnel and Kimberly Prager, ESE specialist were also honored for helping and getting EMTs to the classroom. After a few days in the hospital, Lucia was back in the classroom smiling and healthy.
