School Resource Officers Chris English and Nicole Reddix made house calls on Wednesday – and what our students received when they opened the door was a welcome post-holiday surprise!
The Albany Police Department, in partnership with the City of Albany and the district, recognized the second-round of “Do the Right Thing” winners. The initiative acknowledges middle and high school students’ accomplishments, positive behavior and good deeds. Worthy students are nominated by school staff, parents, police officers and community members.
“In these challenging times, it is more important than ever to support young people who make smart choices and are role models in our community. Many, many of our students ‘do the right thing’ every day, and we are grateful to our city and our police for creating this opportunity to recognize and reward them,” said school Superintendent Kaweeda G. Adams.
Seven winners were chosen to receive Samsung tablets and all the students, including two additional nominees, received certificates, gift cards and tee-shirts.
