Ruth Myers Award Winners

Published: May 25, 2016

At the end of each year Lincoln School presents a very special award – the Ruth Myers Citizenship Award.  This award is given in honor of a former teacher, Mrs. Ruth Myers. 


Mrs. Myers was born and raised in Iowa. She went to college at the University of Northern Iowa (but at the time Mrs. Myers went it was called Northern State Teachers College). She also attended Iowa State University and then later, Illinois State University. She taught 2nd grade in Collins, IA for one year; taught 1st & 2nd grade in Indianola, IA for one year and then moved to Morton. While in Morton she substitute taught, was a 4H leader, a recreation director for girls, very active in her church (sang in the choir for 25 yrs.), and taught 4th grade here at Lincoln for 17 years.  


This award is a testament to Mrs. Myers service in our school and the qualities she had and displayed as a good citizen.  The Ruth Myers Citizenship Award recognizes one outgoing 6th grade girl and one 6th grade boy who have displayed outstanding citizenship characteristics. 


The criteria for the award:

The student should have demonstrated a caring concern for others, and provides a good example for younger students.

The student takes responsibility for himself/herself at school, on the bus, and at school activities.

The student shows good sportsmanship in the classroom, in P.E. class, and on the playground. 

The student must have at least a “C” average overall.

The student adheres to the school rules.

The student is polite and helpful in the classroom, hallways, cafeteria, restrooms, and on the playground. 

The student has participated in volunteer work in the community or was involved in service projects through various organizations.


The selection process:

Mrs. Mills, Mrs. Brown and Mrs. Priller select a handful of girls and boys who they see that display these characteristics.  These names are then voted on by staff members who see the children in different aspects (such as on the playground, in the lunchroom, in special classes, in the hall, etc).  A final tally is taken and the top boy and girl are selected for this award.  The winners of this award will receive a special plaque and their names will be added to the plaque in the hall of former winners of this award. 


The winners of the 2016 Ruth Myers Citizenship Award are Jessie Powley and Jackson Weber.  Jessie is the daughter of Mark Powley and Susan Powley.  Aaron and Dana Weber are Jackson’s parents.   Congratulations to Jessie and Jackson on this outstanding achievement!  Both students are excellent role models, helpful school citizens, caring students and set an excellent example in all settings.
