Lower Dauphin students honored for doing the right thing

Posted

Two Lower Dauphin High School sophomores and a sixth-grader at Lower Dauphin Middle School recently were recognized by Hummelstown police and Lower Dauphin Communities That Care in the Do the Right Thing program.

The high school students, August Schumacher and Brett Zimmerman, witnessed a physical domestic violence incident while on East Main Street in Hummelstown. They acted quickly by calling 911 to report the incident and Hummelstown Police Officer Joshua Martin said their actions “helped prevent a violent incident from becoming far worse.”

Sixth-grader Carly Stephens was recognized by her teacher, Lori Goncalves, for her donation to the school’s Catch The Spirit coin collection. Carly donated all the coins she’s been collecting her entire life to help students less fortunate than herself.

For their good deeds, they were recognized with a $25 gift card, a Do the Right Thing T-shirt and certificate, and pizza coupons. 

Now in its 10th year, the program recognizes students in the Lower Dauphin community who have distinguished themselves through their accomplishments, attitude or outstanding efforts.

School staff members and police officers typically nominate students whose positive actions come to their attention, 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.
