Do The Right Thing
Do The Right Thing recognizes students who "Do the Right Thing" by exhibiting qualities of leadership that often go unnoticed such as being attentive and participatory in the classroom, displaying a consistently inviting and friendly spirit, and participating in extracurricular activities. Identified students act as mentors and motivators to classmates in order to decrease occurrences of in-school suspension, and to increase participation in extracurricular activities.
At Callaway High School in Georgia, 51% of the student body participate in at least one sport. Last year, 70 student athletes at Callaway High School were identified by coaches and staff as leaders. The program encourages them to be leaders, not only on the field, but in the hallways and classrooms, also encouraging them to hold their fellow classmates accountable. The program includes a monthly Skype meeting with students with selected topics for discussion determined by school staff.
