He spends a lot of his time helping others. Spencer Burns is one of our Do the Right Thing Award winners.

He is an eighth grader at School No. 16 in the city, but was nominated for the honor by the Director of Quad A, an afterschool program.

When Spencer is there, he volunteers by tutoring younger students. He’s described as a leader and that was evident over the holidays when he stepped up and helped out in delivering more than 880 pounds of food to families in need.

Spencer Burns said, “I just like helping people. You got to do what you got to do.”
