Jessica Jenkins - HONESTY

Georgia Military College Prep School recognizes Jessica Jenkins for earning the Character of the Week Award in demonstrating the virtue of Honesty. "This morning while passing out the Final Exam, Jessica asked if a page I had stapled to the test was supposed to be there. When I checked, I found that I had mistakenly stapled the answer key to the exam. Imagine how easy it would have been for her to keep quiet and all of those who had that same sheet to continue taking the exam knowing they had all the right answers. I immediately took up the exam and corrected the situation. Had it not been for Jessica showing sound judgment, I would not have known until it was too late. She did a great job by doing the right thing, even though it was probably not the popular decision. Great job Jessica, I am proud of you."
