Student achievement winner named
The Panama City Beach City Council recently recognized Josie Buell as this month's Civic Achievement Award winner with the Boys and Girls Club of Panama City Beach.
When school starts this August Josie will attend Hutchinson Beach Elementary School where she will be in the fourth grade.
Boys and Girls Club Unit Director Latina Reed praised Josie as an extremely kind person.
"She is incredibly sensitive and I think that is why she is able to be so in tune with the moods of those who are around her," said Reed. "I have never heard her say one mean word against anyone and even if she is done wrong by someone, the first thing she vocalizes is that she forgives them. Then she tries to understand their behavior."
Josie's parents are James and Jennifer Buell. Josie said she wants to be a graphic designer when she grows up. Congratulations, Josie!
