The Indiana Association for the Gifted has selected Kaia Webb as the recipient of the 2018 Distinguished Middle School Student Award. IAG recognizes students who have demonstrated distinguished achievement in academics, leadership or the arts.
Kaia is an eighth-grade student at Southwestern Middle School. Teacher Denise Walker says Kaia excels in Honors English and Honors Geometry classes and is involved in many activities outside the classroom. "Kaia is president of Southwestern's Student Council, a member of the Wildcats for Change service organization and active in choir. She has been the winner of her school-wide spelling bee since fifth-grade, and last year placed second in the Regional Spelling Bee."
The IAG recognized Kaia during a luncheon December 11 in Indianapolis.
