The new organization, founded by Eastside teacher Mary Ann Daves, includes students that maintain a 2.5 grade point average, are positive role models, are respectful to peers and adults and represent their family, school and community with integrity. In addition to these qualities, each fifth grade applicant submitted an essay detailing why they should be selected and had to have teacher recommendations. Membership is contingent on maintaining the organizations high standard of grades and attitude and in two months more members may be selected.
