ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — As kids are headed back to school, News10NBC is announcing the last two winners of the “Do the Right Thing” award.

Nicholas Tate was nominated by Ms. DyShawn Wall, a teaching assistant at the Wilson Foundation Academy for his responsible behavior.

On the morning of Jan. 28, Nicholas woke up late for school.

As a result, he missed his school bus.

As soon as Nicholas woke up, he got up, got ready for school as he typically does and proceeded to walk to school — over three miles away!

This behavior proved that Nicholas is committed to being a Wilson Scholar and everyone at the Wilson Foundation Academy applauds Nicholas for his efforts in making sure that he made it to school.

The Do the Right Thing Awards program has been part of the Rochester Police Department since 1995 and News10NBC is a proud sponsor of the program.

Any student enrolled in grades k-12 in any Monroe County school is eligible for nomination. The good deed the student is nominated for must have occurred in Monroe County within one year of the nomination. Anyone over 18 years-of-age can submit a nomination form (this includes family, friends, school staff, coaches, etc.).

Nomination forms can be completed and submitted electronically or you can print the PDF form and email or fax the completed form. Forms are also available at any RPD building and any City school or City library.

Nominations can be emailed to DoTheRightThing@cityofrochester.gov or faxed to (585) 428-6093.
