RHS students make a difference

This morning was the "You Make a Difference" breakfast at the high school and I had the pleasure of hearing about several students who have made positive differences in others' lives, through small or large efforts. Today's honorees included:

-- Two boys who walked a staff member's dog while she was incapacitated
-- A group of theater students who donated their time to coach special needs children in a production of Charlie & the Chocolate Factory
-- A boy with a perpetually positive attitude
-- A group of students who raised awareness (and over $6,000) for autism awareness
-- A boy who went out of his way to make sure his teacher knew about another student's efforts
-- A New Players student who in one year not only learned to tap dance at a high level but inspired others to dance and founded a new group of RHS dancers called the Wood Hoofers

Nice job, everyone!
