Every six weeks, two outstanding Safety Harbor Middle School students are recognized by the Safety Harbor Kiwanis Club with its Seahawk Award.

The latest recipients are Giovanie Adorno and Jessica Morey, who were chosen by teacher Vicky Kahler.

Kahler noted that beyond being fine students, both seventh-graders should be praised for their mature and decisive actions in dealing with a bullying situation by defusing a confrontation in the school with no adult supervision.

Safety Harbor Kiwanis president Pam Corbino presented the trophies.
