This last Saturday, Natomas officials held the N Factor Awards. The N Factor Awards is an annual event that recognizes individuals in the Natomas community and rewards them for their efforts. Rewards include plaques and trophies and even scholarships for exceptional students. 2017’s N Factor awards were held at Natomas Charter School in the Benvenuti Performing Arts Center. Members of the community gathered in the center to celebrate the community’s best.
One of the event’s awards recognizes the youth in the community who go beyond the expectations of others around them. Nine students from various high schools in the Natomas Unified School District were nominated for their extraordinary efforts to better the community.
Out of those nine students, two of Leroy Greene Academy’s Junior class were nominated, Kimberly Jackson-Maxies, LGA’s ASB President, and Mack Gregory, the ASB Tech Commissioner. The winners were revealed, Kim and Mack both receiving the well-earned “Exceptional Natomas Youth” Award.
Kim was recognized for her duties as ASB President, for her volunteer work, and her work with the Police Department. The N Factor Awarded recognized Mack for his work in leadership, volunteering, and the Boy Scouts and Venturing programs. Both Leroy Greene students were recognized for their academic efforts and their 4.0 GPAs.
Both graciously accepted their awards, and thanked the event and its hosts for the recognition. Kim and Mack received a plaque and $250 in the form of a scholarship, to reward them for their exceptional talents and efforts.
Next year, Leroy Greene Academy’s students once again have the opportunity to also earn this award, and to be recognized for their own exceptional work.
