Independence Local Schools has launched a new program to recognize those individuals who go over and beyond and make a difference in other people's lives. They are extraordinary...unique... talented...and deserve to be recognized.
Meet our #IPrideStars of the Week! Through the Independence Local Schools Facebook page, we will introduce you to our IPride Stars. They can be students, teachers, staff, alumni, residents, businesses or other community members. We hope these individuals and their stories inspire you and bring a smile to your face. We will chronicle all of our IPride Stars using the hashtag #IPrideStar on Twitter and Facebook so be sure to follow!

This week's IPride Star of the Week is Anna Waski, a student at Independence Primary School. Anna has gone above and beyond helping fellow students particularly kindergarteners and first graders, as well as new to the district students feel comfortable in a new environment. She assists her bus driver whenever she is called upon. Her compassion and genuine regard for fellow students is amazing. She was nominated by Scott Swierkosz.
