A young fifth grader is being honored for literally giving a classmate the shirt off his back.

Jonathan Chanthavong was nominated for the "Do the Right Thing" award by his teacher. The children were in class when they had two fire drills in a row during a chilly day. School leaders say during the second drill, Jonathan noticed a follow classmate was shivering. So he took his sweatshirt to help her warm up.

Jonathan Chanthavong said, "She forgot her jacket and I had two so I offered her my jacket."

Jonathan attends School No. 42 where teachers say he always leads by example and maintains a positive attitude.
