Acts of kindness

The Compassion Project at the Westland City Council meeting Dec. 4 introduced three outstanding students from three different elementary schools in the Wayne-Westland district. Each child was chosen for this award based on random acts of kindness they implemented toward classmates, teachers, and/or classroom. Liam Bejarano from Edison Elementary surprised his teacher with her favorite candy while Sophia Bell-Esparza from Elliott Elementary was recognized for the help she provided in the lunchroom at her school. Angel Payne from Hicks Elementary has demonstrated her constant willingness to help her classmates, according to her nomination. Each of the students showed compassion and empathy in each of the random acts of kindness, according to program organizers and each was recognized during the city council meeting last week.
