Today we salute Overton High School's 2014 Salutatorian Daniel Rose! Daniel what an accomplishment man! This goes to show that hard work and dedication pays off!
Mrs. Watkins Overton, 1962
“… With the permission of your principal and faculty, and with the approval of the Board of Education, I have therefore established an annual award to be known as the "Watkins Overton Citizenship Award." Each year the principal and faculty shall choose a member of the graduating class of Overton High who, in their estimation, has been outstanding in citizenship in this school -- a student who has gone above and beyond those duties actually required of him. It shall be my privilege each year to present to a member of the graduating class of Overton a plaque similar to the one I hold in my hands.
Daniel has met President Obama as one of only two delegates from Tennessee in the United States Youth Senate Leadership Program. Daniel is also fluent in Spanish and is a classical pianist. You can listen to him play on http://youtube/Uy1i9a4BVo
