On Thursday, September 19, 2013 the Fort Myers Police Department’s “Do the Right Thing” program honored six area youth for their good deeds. Chief Doug Baker presented awards to the following students at a ceremony at the City of Fort Myers Council Chambers:
Carlee and Isabel Isenhower of Edison Park Creative and Expressive Arts were honored for their honesty. Carlee and Isabel were at a restaurant and had visited the ladies room. While washing their hands, the girls found two expensive rings next to the sink. Carlee and Isabel collected the rings and located the restaurant manager who was able to return the rings to a very grateful owner. We are proud of the girls for doing the right thing.
Taylor Evans is a 2nd grader at Orangewood Elementary. Taylor was recognized for his awareness and knowledge of safety. While outside in the school yard a visitor on campus asked Taylor to open the school gate to allow access to the property. Taylor did not know the adult and told the visitor that she could not open the gate, and that it was against the rules and not safe. We are proud of Taylor for keeping her school safe.
