A trio of Wayne-Westland Community Schools students were recognized March 6 for going out of their way to enrich the lives of others.
The three middle-school students were acknowledged at Monday’s Westland City Council meeting by Westland’s Compassionate City Committee, which is working in conjunction with W-WCS. Several students were nominated from the district’s 17 schools.
The threesome recognized were Emily DeLane of Adams Middle School, Monique Oliver of Adams Middle School and Naomi Dugger of Stevenson Middle School.
DeLane visits the Adams Middle School gym during here lunch hour every day and interacts with students from the SXI (severely multiple impairments) classroom. She has handmade a backpack for each of the SXI students with the students’ names embroidered on their backpack.
Oliver was nominated by Simone Argue and the Peer to Peer students at Adams as a result of the compassion, kindness and leadership she displays while working with students. The Peer to Peer program pairs students with differently-able students to encourage understanding and friendship.
