The local group of students was chosen for their positive attitude, behavior, and accomplishments.

"I'm tearful, tearful, cheerful because there's so many kids doing positive things, and tearful because I'm very moved by their stories. A lot of these kids have changed their attitudes, they take care of their family, they work in the community, and they're doing their best to make good grades and build for their futures and that's inspirational," said Terri Ketover, founder of Do the Right Thing.

This is the fourth month the PSPD has held the ceremony.
