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. LaFayette Mayor Barry Moody spoke to the students at the assembly and congratulated them on being “the best of the best.” The Eastside Top Dawgs pictured, in front, from left are TraQuayvon Vines, Kiaja Postell, Sherriah Thomas, Faith Barker, Shakya Story, Ramiyah Patten, Malaysia Carlisle, Alieyah Tettleton, Priscilla Barajas, Ariana Story, Shamecia Thomas and Kinsley Razz.
