Grade: 12
For every field trip that the class goes on, Martin always opens the doors for others and shows great manners towards peers and staff. On one occasion, the students were at a small arcade section and Martin kindly shared his extra quarters with his peers. Not everyone brought enough money and so they had the opportunity to enjoy the arcade with their friends with Martin’s generosity. He did not want to hoard all the quarters, so he was happy to see that his classmates were all able to enjoy the games.
