Joseph Payne is a 12th grade student who is in the Advancement via Individual Determination (AVID) class. He exceeds the expectations as an AVID student and is a student who demonstrates PRIDE. His manners are impeccable and he is, without question, one of my most polite and respectful students. He gladly accepts the role that is expected of him as an AVID student, recognizes the importance of AVID in his daily schedule, and is always willing to participate and support his fellow classmates. Teachers and administrators feel Joseph is wise beyond his years and they are more than confident that he will excel at accepting and conquering any challenge life throws his way.
