Thirty-one students at South Brunswick Middle School were honored on Friday, November 15th for being “Good Neighbors” in their school and in their communities. Honorees, along with their parents, were invited to attend the award ceremony which took place in the school’s media center. Breakfast was shared while South Brunswick Middle School Principal David Ruth welcomed everyone and praised the students and their families.  Guest speaker, Walter Finnigan, shared what makes a good neighbor and why it is important.  “Today is just the beginning.  By being invited here today, you have already demonstrated Good Neighbor qualities.  Here are 3 P’s to Success – Power to imagine more for yourself.  Passion, nothing else matters when you are doing what you love.  Persistence to chance after your dreams.”  Teachers of the students then presented the awards while sharing briefly why the student was chosen to be honored.
