The city of St. Peters Board of Aldermen recently recognized Fort Zumwalt South High students Justin Kreder and Michael Lawless at the Jan. 23 meeting for going above and beyond to support their high school’s food pantry. With the help of special needs students, South High maintains a pantry that offers weekend food items for students in need. Kreder and Lawless went above and beyond to support this effort by paying for canned goods and then transporting them the pantry.
Their efforts resulted in Fort Zumwalt teacher Maggy Steitz nominating the students as recipients of the city’s Random Acts of Kindness award.
St. Peters’ Random Acts of Kindness program was created by the city’s board of aldermen and mayor to help encorage citizens to recognize their fellow citizens for going above and beyond with demonstrations of acts of kindness in the local community.
