Cape Coral Daily Breeze

The Lee County Sheriff's Office held its monthly Do The Right?Thing ceremony Thursday, May 17, 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 2017-2018 school year, the LCSO 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.

Chance Taylor of Cape Coral,

fourth grade, Hancock Creek Elementary School

Hancock Creek Elementary School, physical education teacher Carol Palow wrote that "Chance's older cousin was staying at his house while his parents were out of town. The boys were in the pool for about 10 minutes and then got out to toss the football around. Chance's cousin said he was not feeling well and said his vision was completely blurry. He then passed out and thumped to the ground. Chance did not hesitate and immediately got his mom and called 9-1-1. He comforted his cousin until paramedics arrived and took Chance's cousin to the hospital. His quick actions that day potentially saved a life."

Selena Thier of Cape Coral,

third grade, Caloosa Elementary School

Dunbar High School, school resource officer Cpl. Ranju George wrote that "Selena Their has been stopping and giving out a prayer card entitled 'Officer's Prayer' to any law enforcement officer she comes in contact with. I am one of many law enforcement officers who have received one of these cards from Selena. I am grateful to this young lady for going out of her way to hand these cards. It is nice to know that our efforts are appreciated. Selena has given out about 1,700 of these prayer cards, to officers from Charlotte, Collier and Lee counties. Her goal is to give out 2000 of these cards."
