Do the Right Thing

We have partnered with the Albany Police Department and the City of Albany on “Do the Right Thing,” an initiative that acknowledges middle and high school students for their accomplishments, positive behavior and good deeds.

Worthy students are nominated by school staff, parents, police officers and community members. 

Each month, of those nominated, 10 students from each middle school and 20 from Albany High will be selected to receive a T-shirt, a certificate of acknowledgement and a small prize. Of the semi-finalists, one student from each middle school and three students from Albany High will named winners and all will receive a tablet.

Prizes are donated courtesy of our community partners at Sovrana Pizza & Deli, Spinners Pizza & Subs and Stewart's Shops.
