Each month, Elmont Memorial’s Always a Better Choice (ABC) Committee honors students who perform good deeds every day. These model citizens deserve recognition and make Elmont Memorial a better place.
Freshman Mike Jensen-Joseph was recognized for helping a new student with limited English. For several days, Mike showed the new student around and got him locks, a locker and an ID card.
Freshman Luciendel Plantin was celebrated for informing a teacher that she had accidentally dropped money out of her pocket.
Freshmen Chenetta Hall and Hailee Walker were recognized for going out of their way to help a seventh-grader who felt embarrassed after falling in the cafeteria by consoling and befriending her.
Also honored were eighth-grader Jordan Lugg, who found keys and returned them to the main office, and eighth-grader Amber Redhead, who returned $20 she found on the band room floor.
Congratulations to these students for their acts of kindness, gestures of compassion and for contributing to a culture of selflessness at Elmont Memorial High School. May you all continue to be Model Citizens within and without the walls of Elmont!
