Middle School Students Participate in “I’m Concerned About the Blueberries” Program

Several middle school students participated in the “I’m Concerned About the Blueberries” campaign, a pay-it-forward, non-profit program founded by local business owner Phil Shaltz.

As part of the program, students are encouraged to do acts of kindness for others and present them with a card to inform them about the project.  Two of our middle schoolers volunteered to pay-it-forward this year and reported their experiences to the Blueberry program.

David Booth, 8th grader, and Sarah Marshall, 7th grader, were invited to the awards ceremony held in Flint on May 19th. After a pizza lunch, “Blue Ribbon Winners” from each school were announced. Each winner received an award and a $100 donation to his/her school.

Bentley Middle School’s David Booth was selected as a “Blue Ribbon Winner” for his variety of helpful experiences.

Next year, Bentley Community Schools looks forward to expanding the program to include more students in this positive opportunity.
