By Staff | Mar 8, 2019

Humanitarian concern, honesty, integrity, positive decision making and heroism were recognized Thursday Feb. 21, during the Lee County Sheriff’s Office’s “Do The Right Thing” awards ceremony in the Board Room of the School Board of Lee County, Lee County Public Education Center, 2855 Colonial Blvd., Fort Myers.

Each month throughout the 2018-2019 school year, the Sheriff’s Office honors the positive actions of the community’s students through the “Do The Right Thing” student recognition program. The goal of “Do The Right Thing” is to reinforce positive behavior among youths and to establish students as role models for their peers.

“Do The Right Thing” honorees:

Jordan Fraser, Cape Coral,

fifth grade, Hancock Creek Elementary School

Hancock Creek Elementary School, secretary to principal Amy Howard wrote that “A fight broke out between two students. Jordan immediately jumped into action as a safety patrol. He got between the two students and was able to keep them apart until an adult arrived. The situation was quickly and safely diffused due to Jordan’s fast thinking and correct response. We thank Jordan for taking his safety patrol position seriously and for working hard to keep our students safe.”

Lincoln Stroup, North Fort Myers,

fifth grade, Hancock Creek Elementary School

Hancock Creek Elementary School, first grade teacher Brent Bell wrote that “Lincoln observed a child in my class that would continuously arrive to school in clothing that was not sufficient for the colder weather. On one of the coldest mornings, Lincoln, as a school safety patrol, escorted the student to class. He asked permission to give the student two of his own jackets that he had outgrown.”
