Once Every month the Napa high staff has the opportunity to nominate a student who has showed leadership inside or outside the classroom for tribal pride, which acknowledges you for being a being an exemplary student. When students are nominated they are excused from 2nd period on a friday and are invited to a ceremony in the cafeteria where they are recognized by NHS staff and other tribal pride nominees and receive a certificate of acknowledgement.

Students are welcomed by Napa High principal Annie Petrie and then given a complimentary breakfast. Followed by the Ceremony is a big picture with all the tribal pride recipients and their certificate.

Napa High Junior Daisy Infante said “ I’ve only gotten tribal pride once, the ceremony was boring but the breakfast was nice.”

“ It makes you achieved at first when you get it and then you find out what teacher nominated you and it makes you feel like as if the teacher just really likes you. It would be nice to get it again but it would just be a waste of time because it would just take me out of class” she said.

Jacob Reger, A Napa High junior and varsity wrestler said, “I’ve never gotten it before but I would really want to because it would be pretty cool, because it would be an achievement that I’ve never gotten before.”

Napa High sophomore Raymond Munoz said, “I have never gotten tribal pride before, I didn’t even know it was a thing until this year. I heard you get a breakfast and get excused from 2nd period so I really want to get it now.”

The breakfast being students favorite part of the tribal pride ceremony.

“I know what tribal pride is but unfortunately I’ve never gotten it before but I think it’s a good thing that the school has it and acknowledges students and plus you get a free bagel” said sophomore Allyson Qui.

On the Other hand, junior Cesar Castro said, “I have gotten tribal pride a total of 8 times, I show my parents the certificate and they congratulate me and I know that I am making them happy.”

“I like the ceremony and the breakfast, tribal pride in general is fun to receive.”
