What makes this nominee inspiring?

"When I found myself sitting outside the Head's office, doing a detention, or an imposition, or waiting to be caned, I would gaze up at the Roll of Honour boards on the wall above his office, the porter's office, and the school secretaries' office. I always saw his name, because it figured so often over the years - and he inspired me to try harder to avoid the cane in future. Not entirely successfully though."
