— Each year, one eighth grade student from Byram Intermediate School is selected to receive the Superintendent’s Roundtable Award. The winner is chosen based on overall academic performance, participation in extracurricular activities and citizenship qualities.

The Byram School staff announced this year’s winner, Grace Connery.

Grace, 13, has attended Byram Township Schools since kindergarten. She participates in many extracurricular activities, loves to help others, and is devoted to her studies, according to a school news release.

Her favorite sport is basketball. She participates on three basketball teams the Byram Rams, the Our Lady of the Lake CYO team, and the Crossroads AAU team.

In addition, Grace plays for the Lenape Valley Rebels travel soccer team and has been in Girl Scout Troop 326 for nine years. Her troop is dedicated to helping the community. They recently visited Andover Nursing Home and contributed to St. Michael’s Food Bank.

Individually, Grace is planning a community service project for her Silver Award. At school she is a peer leader, a member of the gifted and talented program, and is on the yearbook committee.

In the past, Grace has received the Principal’s Award, Student of the Month Award, and has consistently been on High Honor Roll.

In algebra class, she currently holds the times tables record. Grace said she is going to miss Byram Intermediate School when she moves on to high school.

Upon hearing she was selected for the award, Grace was honored and excited.

She said she would like to thank her teachers for the nomination and for helping her reach her academic goals. She would also like to thank her family, coaches, and Girl Scout Leaders for their support. Grace and her parents will attend the Superintendent’s Roundtable Awards Luncheon on April 11 at the Lafayette House.
