Student of the Month Recipient

Elijah Bridgeman

Howard Drive Elementary School


Elijah Bridgeman is a fifth-grade student at Howard Drive Elementary School.  Elijah not only shows respect for others but encourages other students to be respectful and conscientious.  He has been in the 5000 Role Models of Excellence Project for two years.  Elijah’s career goal is to work for a fire department as a paramedic. He says this will allow him to help people, which is something he loves to do.

Elijah also enjoys learning in his classes and through participation in the 5000 Role Models chapter at Howard Drive Elementary. He is especially excited about his experiences including the end of year trips to restaurants before the pandemic and to the virtual Zoo Miami field trip. At home he likes helping his mom cook and riding his bike. He has won awards in citizenship for responsibility.


His favorite saying is: “The opinion that matters the most is yours.”
