AZTV Golden Rule Kids

 Do you know a child who goes above and beyond the call of duty? Do you see a student in your life living the Golden Rule in their school? If so, don’t hesitate to nominate them for the Golden Rule Student of the Month award! Bashes and the AGREE program come together to honor children who exemplify empathy, kindest, civility, and respect, treating those around them as they would like to be treated. Pat McMahon speaks with Sue Lynn Stiner and Anne Taylor from the AGREE team about the way in which these children have helped change their community, and also about how you can get involved! Think of the child that has shown you what it means to “do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. Then give them a Golden Rule Student of the Month nomination! All the information on Arizona Daily Mix.

Nominate-Student of the Month

Gilbert, Arizona’s Keira Hearn is an all-around kind young lady to everyone she meets. She is sincere and respectful at all times. However, there was one instance where she stepped up and went beyond the call of duty to be kind to a classmate who has certain sensory needs and perseverations. This student has an intense fear of fire drills, and the noise of the alarm causes her great distress. As a result, this student is always warned ahead of time that there will be a fire drill so that she can be out of the building before the alarm goes off. On this day, however, there was a miscommunication in the office that prevented this student from receiving her warning. Everyone was quietly working in class when the alarm sounded, and they all knew to immediately check on this student. Her teacher needed to ensure every student exited safely, and so Keira took it upon herself to escort this scared student out of the building safely and calmly.


At only 10 years old, Roman Vargas of Sunnyslope School spends his free time feeding the hungry, participating in the walk for down syndrome, walks his younger sister to and from school everyday, advocates for anti-bullying and so much more. His sweet disposition and genuine regard for others is why he is October’s Golden Rule Student of the Month. Congratulations, Roman!

Do you know who Chandler Plante is? If you live in Camp Verde, you may have seen him around town doing things to help the community and the people. You may have met him but have not had the chance to get to know him

Chandler is a 12 year old kid that since the age of five, has been rallying community members around causes or programs that touched his heart. His enthusiasm for volunteering and helping others has inspired many people in the Verde Valley to join him in his efforts. Chandler has proven by example, that it does not matter how old you are, you’re never too young or too old to help your fellow neighbors.

He has volunteered and organized fundraisers such as raffles and coin collections to raise money for local residents in need of financial help to pay medical bills. He also helps with food drives, collecting and sorting foods for local food banks, and offers free lawn service for the elderly and handicap people of Camp Verde.

Chandler is always looking for ways to help others in his community with no thought to himself. If he hears of someone in his community in need of assistants, Chandler is more often than not the first to try to help.


Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. This golden rule really should be the foundation of our social interaction, and all too often, it is complete forgotten or discarded. That is why AGREE and Bashas are proud to sponsor the Golden Rule Student of the Month, and we here at AZTV are excited to be a part of it. One student every month is nominated for this prestigious award, and we get to tell you all about what these children are doing in their schools and their communities! Join Pat McMahon on Arizona Daily Mix for all the details.


Cooper Christensen graces us with his presence on Arizona Daily Mix, and Pat McMahon is beyond excited to tell us all about this exceptional young man. An Eagle Scout, Colt Crew founder, captain of the Varsity Boy’s Basketball Team, and so much more… but most importantly, Cooper is the Golden Rule Student of the Month. Sponsored by AGREE and Bashas, this prestigious award is presented to students who make a difference in the world around them by living the golden rule.

Arizona Golden Rule Educational Experiences is proud to present the winner of this prestigious award, which spotlights children in our school system that stand out for the right reasons. When their diligent study, caring friendship, or mature respect shows up in their classes, it helps to make a change for the better in the people around them.
