Gia Filipiak

Trafalgar Elementary School 3rd Grade

Gia observed what looked like a possible kidnapping and alerted her grandmother. The incident involved a girl whose mother was supposed to have a supervised visit with her. There was a lot of yelling and angry words being exchanged. Gia observed that the girl was scared and walked over to hug and reassure her. All the stranger danger lessons that Gia had learned were well worth it.

Yadira Ortiz

Caloosa Middle School 8th Grade

Yadira was communicating with a friend via text. The friend expressed a desire to harm herself. Yadira showed the texts to her school counselor to try to keep her friend safe. The counselor was able to intervene and get the friend the help she needed.

Luke Cummings

Pelican Elementary School - 5th Grade

It was the end of the school week before winter break. Luke found $5 on the bus ramp and immediately turned it into a school official. It would have been easy for him to tuck the money in his pocket, but he did the right thing and turned in the money.

Joshua Kelly

Oasis Middle School - 6th Grade

Josh observed another student taking medication outside the clinic. He informed the clinic personnel who discovered there was no permission form at the school.
