Two young Rochester brothers are being recognized for doing the right thing.

School No. 45 seventh graders Samad and Muhaimin Muhammad were nominated by their neighbor, Antoinette. Back in January, Antoinette’s daughter lost her school ID, bus pass and keys. The ID had her address on it and her house key was with it. 

In the heavy snow and bitter cold, Muhaimin and Samad found the items, buried under the snow. They came to her home and returned them. 

Antoinette was so impressed that the brothers put a stranger’s needs ahead of their own. 

Muhaimin and Samad Muhammad said, “It was the right thing to do. I know if it was our key, I would want somebody to bring it back to us."
