ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) -- News10NBC's latest Do the Right Thing award winner is a third grader from Dr. Walter Cooper Academy School 10. 

Meet Jeffery Nesmith Junior. 


Jeffery recently found a cell phone while playing outside with his friends. 

He foud out who the phone belonged to and made sure that person got their phone back. 

"When I told my friends they said, 'why did you do that? You should have kept it.'...I didn't keep it...because it's not the right thing to do."

Congrats Jeffery!
