Lower Dauphin fifth-grader, freshman recognized for ‘doing the right thing’

Posted

A fifth-grader at Nye Elementary School and a ninth-grader at Lower Dauphin High School were recently recognized for “doing the right thing” in their community.

Carson Huff, the fifth-grader, was nominated by his teacher Carol Gallerizzo after she was told that he was helping a student with special needs play football, taking him under his wing and helping include the other student feel included.

Ninth-grader Carlos Guma was nominated by a high school teacher who related a story of Carlos helping at a fire scene and making sure the homeowner was safe before the fire company arrived.

For their good deeds, they were recognized with a $25 gift card, a Do The Right Thing T-shirt and certificate, and Papa John’s pizza coupons. This month's program sponsor was Dave Roeting with Roeting Mechanical Associates. 

Other students nominated in February were Dawson Barrett, a fourth-grader at East Hanover Elementary School; Isaiah Klopp, a kindergarten student at East Hanover Elementary School; and Tajhier Nealy, an eighth-grader at the Price School.

The program recognizes students in the LD community who have distinguished themselves through their accomplishments, attitude or outstanding efforts. School staff members and police officers typically nominate students, but any adult older than age 18 can nominate a child. A volunteer committee reviews the student nominations on a monthly basis and selects a winner for each month. For information, contact Kathy Peffer at 566-6096.
