Madelyn found money on the basketball court and immediately turned it into the teacher. This took great character and honesty.

* Amber Eddington

* Amber Gingras

3rd Grade

Amber cares about her classmates in a loving and selfless way. A kindergarten student was diagnosed with cancer and his family was beginning to struggle to make ends meet. The school started a fundraiser but Amber took it much further. She made a heartfelt video and posted it on her mother's Facebook page in an effort to raise more money for the student. After a few weeks of hard work, Amber raised $317 on her own to contribute to this worthy cause.

* Bryon Johnson Jr.

8th Grade

Challenger Middle School

While attending a recent pep rally, Bryon noticed that a student sitting near him had a nose bleed and needed assistance. Bryon stopped what he was doing to make sure the student received the proper assistance.

* Logan Pakula


Diplomat Elementary

Logan's teacher noticed the diamond in her wedding ring missing. Logan told her he saw something shiny on the floor in the classroom. He took her to it and sure enough it was the diamond from her ring.

* Selena Their

1st Grade

Caloosa Elementary

Selena is pro-police and making an impact in the community. For the past few weeks, Selena has been delivering "Kids Care Buckets" filled with toys, to officers. Recently, Selena delivered several (15+) "Kids Care Buckets" to some of our officers. Selena wanted the officers to keep the buckets in their car, in case they were called out, and met a child that needed comforting.
