Zoe Damianos, a sixth-grader at Meiners Oaks Elementary School, was recently named the Rotary Club’s Physical Education Project Award winner. Damianos is described as a well-rounded student who excels in every academic subject. Her teacher, Teresa Lessing, said, “She is a natural, gifted athlete who excels at running, exercising and competitive games. She challenges herself to be the best that she can be and continues to improve. She is always willing to be a team player but never asks to be first or call attention to herself. She is supportive of others and a positive role model to all students.” Damianos also excels on the softball diamond.
