NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- The National Day of Service and Remembrance has passed, but the good deed that one class at Isaac E. Young Middle School has taken on is far from over.

The students in Mary Monteleone's 8th-grade English class started a food drive first by collecting extra canned goods from their homes. By mid-week, several had taken their lunch period to create food drive signs with colored markers to hang in the hallways.

"For them to give up their lunch to make the posters is a nice gesture," Monteleone said.

NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- New Rochelle High School business teacher Robert Thompson originally planned on a career in advertising. But his thoughts turned to teaching in an instant one day when he was serving as a counselor at Camp Quarropas in White Plains while in college.

A painfully shy boy who Thompson had been talking with for weeks hugged him while leaving the camp and thanked Thompson for being his best friend there.

"I wouldn't be here if that moment hadn't happened," Thompson said this week, in his classroom lined with computers.
