Each year at Pierceton Elementary School, the fifth-grade class recognizes a student with the Jamie Eppleman Award. Eppleman, while a fourth-grade student at PES, was tragically killed in a car accident, along with other members of her family.
Eppleman is described by school administrators as â€śa wonderful young girl with many great characteristics. She was caring and respectful of staff and peers. She had a smile no matter what kind of day she was having.
Jamie was careful not to judge and put others first. She had a great sense of humor and enjoyed laughing at herself as well as laughing with others.
She was always trying to improve and learn from her mistakes.â€ť This yearâ€™s Jamie Eppleman Award was presented to Bryce Rhodes.
