TB, great post, kinda shows what makes this a great country! The kids show us how to do it every day.
Whether they were in second or last place the bottom line is this,
they took the necessary steps to help where they believed they could
and through their efforts along with 56 other schools,
they all made a huge difference and I'm sure NY state is equally proud of each school that participated.
