Dogie Challenge Coins will recognize everyday heroes
A phone called started it all when a teacher from a different town described a confident, well-spoken girl, the girl who was excited about school, sports, her future and her community.
Newcastle High School senior Sarah Henkle’s outstanding conversation with that teacher sparked an idea that will be utilized to recognize students, staff and community members for the things they do everyday to help others and bring positivity into their lives.
The staff at Newcastle High School have created the Dogie Challenge Coin, an idea taken from the Military, to recognize those that go above and beyond in their everyday life to make the lives of others easier. The two-sided coin bearing the words “honor, loyalty, service and academics” will be presented to those that are nominated and deserving of the honor of holding the Dogie Challenge Coin.
