For School Counselors


School Counselors often ask what makes a great nominee. Our best answer to that question? 
We are looking for the exceptional leaders within your senior class who:

  • Have a strong ability (plus the desire and drive) to identify and solve problems
  • Set the bar high and inspire others to be better
  • Make a significant positive impact on their school and in the community, and want to do even more in the future

Strong Roan candidates also tend to be those who: 

  • Are respected and admired by their fellow students, as well as by teachers, administrators, and community leaders. They will leave big shoes to fill when they graduate.
  • Strive for excellence in all they do – in the classroom, on the athletic fields, in student organizations, or in other activities throughout the community. Their involvement may follow more traditional paths, or forge new ones.
  • Engage and serve because they’re truly interested. They care. They want to make a difference. And they have the capacity and drive to do so.

Finally, they tend to possess excellent academic credentials: last year, for example, nominees had an average GPA of 3.94 and average composite ACT score of 26.9. More important than their academic success, though, is their intellectual curiosity - their desire to learn for learning's sake, and to translate that knowledge into action and impact.
