Shannon, a sixth-grader, is the son of Wes and Christie Shannon.
His teacher, Rebecca Scheu, said Shannon is “the student that every teacher wants to have in their classroom.”
Scheu praised Shannon for his hard work and friend-liness.
“Griffin is just an all-round great person,” Scheu wrote. “His sense of humor and friendliness makes everyone enjoy him. Griffin is constantly giving his best effort in his class and home assignments. Being respectful and conscientious is what comes to mind when you think about Griffin. We are so lucky to have him in our community!”
Moab Mayor Dave Sakrison and the Moab City Council will present the Mayor’s Citizenship Award to Shannon during a city council meeting in January, according to Moab City Recorder Rachel Stenta.
