PERRYSBURG - Penta Career Center board members got a look at the good deeds being promoted at the school.
At this month's board meeting, students Ashley Gaona and Jessica Walters promoted the school's Active Caring for People initiative (AC4P), which encourages students to actively care and perform intentional acts of kindness as part of their daily routine.
The duo passed out green rubber wrist bands to everyone in attendance, encouraging them to "pay it forward" by passing on the wristband when he or she observes someone else performing an act of kindness.
The program was developed at Virginia Tech in the aftermath 2007 campus shooting.
"It's the purest form of prevention I've ever seen," said Linda Logue, prevention specialist from the Wood County Educational Service Center.
The board also heard an update from FFA members Sarah Bostic and Samantha Warren about their experiences at the national convention; and elected William Green as president.
