Wooster High School Senior named Class Act Award Winner
Reno, (KRNV) —
News Four's Class Act Award winner for the month of May is someone you know is going to do great things!
Evening anchor Shelby Sheehan surprised Joko Cailles at Wooster High School during his spanish class on Tuesday with the award.
Cailles is a senior, who believes in getting involved to make change and he is maintaining that same fire right up until graduation.
In addition to being a strong student in the International Baccalaureate Program, from 2014-2016 he was the founder of Wooster's Red Cross Youth Group, vice president of the Kindness Club and secretary of the National Honor Society.
Cailles is currently on the Student Advisory Board and the Safe and Healthy Schools Commission.
In addition, he helped to re-establish the Reno Youth City Council, that puts student leaders from around the Washoe County School District in direct contact with the Reno City Council. They talk to the council about issues affecting students and give some policy recommendations too.
Cailles says, "When it comes to engaging your community, you have to show up. One of my favorite television shows was the West Wing, It has a saying 'Decisions are made by those who show up.' and that is something I firmly believe in."
Congratulations to Joko Cailles, News Four's Excellence in Education Award Winner!
