Beginning in 2018, the TIM Foundation is pleased to be able to make two awards. And especially pleased to mark the beginning of this series with Elizabeth Orth and Morgan Shimanek.
Elizabeth is a gymnast whose coach sees her passion for the sport at every practice. He particularly says that she has a knack for dealing with the inevitable frustrations of gymnastics, including repetitions and falls. In addition, she is in band and jazz band and is active in her church.
Morgan is a Boy Scout and a Tae Kwon Do athlete. His coach called him a natural for the 5 tenets of courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, and indomitable spirit; he is a rare Scout who achieved his Eagle by 8th grade.
In fact, all of 2018's nominees are outstanding students, athletes, musicians, and people. Congratulations to everyone!
