Consider This: Good News 3/2/17

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - It's been a week with lots of good news stories and we start by telling you about Violet Hines, a student at Garrison School for the Arts.

She was honored as the Character Counts Student of the month. Hines is a member of the Garrison Givers and has participated in clothing and toy drives. She visited a nursing home and handed out Valentine's Day cards to the seniors, in addition to other community involvement to earn the award.

One of the best high school basketball teams in Savannah will look even better the next time they take the court… thanks to Patrick Alston.
Alston went to watch the basketball team at the start of the state playoffs. Although impressed by how the Warriors attacked the rim, he couldn't help notice something closer to the floor. The team couldn't get new shoes on their own, so Alston stepped in. He sent over 17 new pairs to make sure the Warriors both play and look good as they go through the playoffs.

The sweet sounds of the Savannah Children's Choir filled the American Legion Ballroom last Friday as the organization honored someone who knows something about sweet treats. Each year the choir honors someone who contributes to the lives of children and this year's honoree was none other than Savannah's own Stratton Leopold. Programs such as the Ice Cream Pledge and Creative Writing Challenge show Leopold's  dedication to our children and he tells us this recognition is one he does not take lightly.
