"District Seven is an outstanding school district because of families like yours," Spina said to the students. "Tonight I have the privilege and honor to stand here and recognize many of our students who do the right thing, even when no one is looking."

The board also recognized the student's parents for helping to instill what is right in today's kids.

"We're always very pleased have student's and their families attend meetings and recognize them for the quality student's they are and the wonderful things they bring to the district," Superintendent Dr. Lynda Andre said. "It's always a good night when we have kids and their families here."

Each student recognized was nominated by a teacher, his/her principal or another staff member because of an act of kindness that was observed somewhere in school. The program regularly recognizes students who emphasize good judgment in a variety of situations.

Students recognized:

Goshen Elementary: Madison McLeland, Mason McLeland, Reagan Farris and Kenley Stowe
