Two Bishop Kearney students were selected as “Do The Right Thing” recipients:
- Marie Claire DeFord, 12th grade, Bishop Kearney High School: Highlighted for her extensive volunteerism: most notably her work with the children of migrant workers. Marie Claire DeFord will attend Canisius College in the fall and intends to major in Education.
- Diamond Moorehead, 12th grade, Bishop Kearney High School: Highlighted for her extensive volunteerism: most notably her work with at risk adolescences in teen court. Diamond Moorehead will attend Siena College in the fall and intends to major in Political Science with a minor in Criminal Justice.
Students from various Monroe County schools were honored with Do The Right Thing awards at a ceremony at the Public Safety Building. The awards, which have been offered since 1995, are sponsored by the city of Rochester and the Rochester Police Department. They recognize students for good choices and are used to build a stronger bond between the community and law enforcement and first responders. One of the goals of the program is to recognize good deeds and role model behavior.
Bishop Kearney is extremely proud of these young ladies. They are wonderful ambassadors for Bishop Kearney and they live out the mission our school through their good deeds, volunteerism, and community service. Every year Bishop Kearney students perform thousands of community service hours throughout the Rochester area.
