The PACESETTER of the month will receive a token of appreciation and a signed certificate from the sponsor of that month (either a district or building administrator). Each PACESETTER will have their picture and a short blurb on the PHESD #144 district website. The PACESETTER from each school will also be able to utilize a special parking spot at their building each month.
