Personal. Respect. Integrity. Dedication. Excellence.

What makes an MVE?

In 1987, when former Godwin principal Tom DeBolt came up with the idea for the Most Valuable Eagle, he imagined the MVE as a student who...

•        Values education highly

•        Strives daily to reach his or her potential

•        Sets goals and works to accomplish them

•        Makes contributions to a variety of school activities

•        Exhibits character, integrity, and loyalty

•        Has an optimistic outlook

•        Recognizes teachers and peers as valuable

•        Takes pride in his or her accomplishments

•        Celebrates the accomplishments of others



Characteristics MVEs share, according to Godwin principal Leigh Dunavant; 

•        Friend to everyone

•        Love Godwin

•        Quiet leaders

•        Not always in the limelight

•        Genuinely care for other Eagles
