"Marleigh Skelton is a model student and citizen of the Homestead-Wakefield Elementary Scholl community. She is a young lady who is driven to excel at high levels, is respected by her peers and adults and is a kind to all."

"Marleigh accepts challenges and responsibilities with open arms," the certificate continues. "She seems to gravitate to those who are less fortunate or who need help."
