Ninth-grade student Nestor Vega, from P.J. Jacobs Jr. High, was recognized at Monday’s school board meeting.
Vega went door-to-door after last week’s snowstorm, offering to shovel sidewalks and driveways in an effort to raise money to attend Freshman Winter Formal — which is held jointly for ninth graders from Ben Franklin and P.J. Jacobs Jr. High schools, and sponsored by the Noon Optimist Club — on Feb. 13. One of the doors he knocked on belonged to Kim Shirek, who is serving her second term on the school board.
For his efforts, Vega received a gift certificate for a discounted tuxedo at Circle the Date, a formal wear shop located at 1101 Brilowski Road.
