ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — A celebration Thursday marked the Do the Right Thing Award Winners from this school year.
Rochester Police and board members recognized eight local kids who chose to do the right thing.
Winners included Sarah Adams, an eighth-grader from East High School. She was nominated by her Physical Education teacher for her consistent positive contributions to her school, from helping a younger student learn a step routine during her lunch period to her work as a peer mediator and anti-bullying advocate.
Sixth-grader Anastajia Charley from Rise Community School #106 for seeking one of the City of Rochester’s “Safe Place” services when she was being bullied by a group of girls, safely resolving the situation.
Eighth-grader Brennan Conn from Cosgrove Middle School in Spencerport was nominated for helping the Gates Police Department during an investigation by reporting suspicious behavior.
Third-grader Nathaniel Irvin from Roberto Clemente School #8 for notifying an adult at the YMCA’s after school program when a student lost their gold chain before being picked up by their parents.
Seventh-grader Serenity Mingle from Mary McCleod Bethune School #45 was nominated for calling 911 when one of her classmates was having a seizure.
First-grader Jason Ramos was nominated by his former kindergarten teacher for being a positive role model for other students by doing things like picking garbage up off the floor, hugging students when they are sad and including students who are alone at recess.
The program recognizes students for role model behavior, accomplishments, and good deeds.
