Portrait of a Graduate: Hero Projects

Our Hero Projects at the middle school highlight the Communication piece of Boone Community School District’s Portrait of a Graduate. Karsyn Smith is one of many students whose communication skills increased as a result of the Hero Project!

“Something I liked about this project is realizing the importance of the people that have been there for me throughout my life, or the person I picked as my hero. [...] It brought me out of my comfort zone. This Hero Project was important to me because it helped me realize who is really my hero, and who I look up to the most in my life,” Karsyn shared.

At Boone CSD, we are committed to ensuring students in all grades receive opportunities to grow their communication, civic and global engagement, self-awareness, life-ready, resilience, and critical thinking/problem-solving skills. Keep an eye out for more of our Portrait of a Graduate highlights!
