Go-Getter & Goal-Setter Programs
The Go-Getter program was established in 1989 to serve as an incentive for students who do not normally get recognized for outstanding accomplishments. The students targeted are those who work hard, do their very best, are good citizens but are not the top students in academics or athletics. We wanted to encourage them to be the best they can be by recognizing their efforts.
Each month the school selects two students who meet this criteria and sends their photographs to us to print in the newspaper. Go-Getters are published on the last Tuesday of each month and continuously online throughout the year. We then send a Go-Getter certificate to each student along with a Go-Getter button.

The object of this program is to recognize and encourage those students who do not receive recognition by other means. These are the students who really work hard and try to do their best, but may not be at the top in scholastics or athletics. With all of the negative influence facing our youth today, we feel it is even more important than ever to focus on their positive attributes and hope that they will serve as examples to others.
Each high school selects two students for recognition each month. The student's picture and a brief descriptor, provided by the teacher, are printed on the "Goal-Setter" page.

All Go-Getters must be entered online by the 15th of each month for the next month’s publication.
All school Go-Getters will publish in the Yuma Sun on the last Tuesday of the month starting September 27, 2011. Those same Go-Getters will then appear on the web-site and will be online for the entire school year.
