The Do the Right Thing of Charlotte County Awards Celebration was held on Thursday, May 5, 2022 at the Military Heritage Museum. The following students were honored:
Kyla Anderson, Meadow Park Elementary, Grade 4
Kyla was honored for always going out of her way to assist other students who may be struggling and needed additional help. And, for one student in particular, she provided extra help and even used her own Dojo points (which are earned for positive behavior) to buy this student a sticker when she got everything correct.
Jimmy Feltus Jr., Liberty Elementary, Grade 1
Jimmy was honored for his bravery and courage during a very difficult situation. Jimmy's mother is battling cancer and while they were home one evening, Jimmy's mother had a seizure. Jimmy went to the nearest phone and called 911. Because of this phone call, Charlotte County Fire & EMS was able to respond to his home and render aid.
Mylah Ivanoff, Amelia Jones, Madison McCord, Gabriella Ravid, and Olivia Ravid
All Deep Creek Elementary Students, Grade 5
Mylah, Amelia, Madison, Gabriella, and Olivia were honored for starting an anti-bullying campaign. This group of students created a slide show to include facts about bullying and how to be an up-stander, created a video and game to accompany it, and made care bags which consisted of a pencil, eraser, stickers, and a note.
Robert Michael James, Neil Armstrong Elementary, Kindergarten
Robert was honored for his quick actions. While Robert was visiting his grandpa, who was cooking on the stove, his grandpa fell. Robert, via his smart watch, notified his mom about this serious situation and she called for help. When help arrived, Robert was able to direct them to grandpa and alerted them on how to turn off the stove.
Aiden Chase Stainton, Port Charlotte High School, Grade 10
Aiden was honored for his immediate action when he noticed a fellow student set paper towels and the dispenser on fire with a lighter. He immediately jumped into action to extinguish the fire by placing the items into the sink and then he alerted school administration.
