A young man has been recognized by his peers at a High School in the Cayo District. Juan Gregorio Tuyel was, on Wednesday, officially recognized for ‘doing the right thing’ at the Eden Adventist High School in Santa Elena Town. The young man is a fourth form student and received a certificate and T-Shirt from the Police Department’s “Do the Right Thing Program” as well as a letter from Belize’s Police Commissioner, Alen Whylie

Doing the presentation of certificate and giving recognition to the model student, for the month of January 2014, was ranking Police Officer Reymundo Reyes.  The “Do the Right Thing Program” is an ongoing program of the Belize Police Department to motivate reformed youths.

“The program is based on students, who at the beginning of their studies may have been are in trouble or about to get dropped from school or suspended, but later on they themselves realized that they may have been going through the wrong track,” says Reymundo Reyes, who now takes over the San Ignacio Police Formation as Ralf Moody goes on leave for 50 days.

Juan Gregorio Tuyel was selected by a team of teachers at Eden High for his good grades and his excellent community service record. He has now become a model student as the rest of his friends came out in large numbers to support him this morning.

The “Do the Right Thing Program” team now travels to Sacred Heart College in San Ignacio Town on Friday of this week, where another student will be similarly recognized at 9:00 a.m. With more exercises such as Do The Right Thing, hopefully, more students will be able to be motivated to switch on to the right power circuit.
