Caught in the Act

Ms. Wiseman was taking pictures at the Junior High Softball game vs. Neshannock for the Junior High yearbook.  During the first inning, two members of the Neshannock team collided in the outfield going for the ball.  The poise, grace, and sportsmanship that our young Lady Canes had during this event was something to be proud of.  The coaches (Dana Perrotta, Paul Boyce, and Vince Evans, as well as the Neshannock coaches) all jumped into action, and our girls all took a knee of silence until the young ladies from Neshannock were cared for.  
As the young ladies from Neshannock were being taken by ambulance, Ms. Wiseman snapped this moving photo of girls from both teams with coach Perrotta praying the Lord's Prayer before the game resumed. Several of the softball players' parents, as well as GW CANES nurse Nicole Hiler, should be commended for springing into action to help the injured young ladies from Neshannock. 
Amira Johnson, Faith Burick, Erica Montgomery, and Isabella Jones came to Mrs. Doneluck's classroom with a sense of urgency because they were genuinely concerned about another student who they thought was in trouble. They were truly worried and said that they came to Mrs. Doneluck because they knew they needed to tell an adult and wanted to help. The student they were worried about had been missing but has since been found. They weren't aware that the situation had been handled, but Mrs. Doneluck let them know that everything was under control. She was very was impressed with their concern for a fellow classmate, especially being that they are all in 7th grade. Way to make us NC Proud!
We are featuring students who were "caught in the act" of doing something nice for others! Junior and Senior High Students Mariah Klingensmith, Laila Evans, Amari Stewart, Jordan Bethune, Tamiyah Kimmel, and Rylee Stewart (missing from photo) were recognized for a random act of kindness they showed towards a peer in need.  Their care and compassion caught the attention of physical education teacher Mr. DeMonaco and Officer Holmes.  These young ladies did not know their peer, but showed him respect and encouragement.  Your principals are very proud of all of you!  THIS IS WHAT IT MEANS TO BE NC STRONG! GREAT JOB!
