Throughout the school year the Niagara County Sheriffs Department, the Niagara Falls Police Department and the Niagara Police Athletic League conduct a “Do the Right Thing” program. This program is designed to recognize children who distinguish themselves through their behavior thus establishing themselves as role models for their peers.
We are pleased to share that two DeSales Students were honored with the “Do the Right Thing” award on Monday, November 9th. Congratulations Aubree Parker and Vincent Harrer.
Aubree Parker, a third grader at DeSales was nominated by her teacher, Mrs. Jan Shipley. Aubree’s kind, compassionate and caring nature made her a great candidate for this award. Citing a specific incident in which Aubree made a positive impact, Mrs. Shipley said “ Aubree showed a maturity beyond her years when caring for a fellow student .”
Vincent Harrer, a 7th grader at DeSales was nominated by Mrs. Cathy Fraass. Since being diagnosed with Type I Diabetes, Vince has been a Youth Ambassador for the Tour De Cure and raised over $18,000. Mrs. Fraass said of Vince “He is a kind and caring young man and is well respected by his teachers and classmates. He is a role model for both adults and children as he has made a positive impact out of a challenge that he faces every day.”
Congratulations Aubree and Vincent!
