A community member wrote to say, "These days we hear so much about teenagers who are in trouble, I wanted to send a note about one of your students who displayed more maturity and manners than most adults would. Earlier tonight I was at Subway picking up dinner with my one-year-old son. A young man in a Redwood baseball uniform saw me heading in and rushed to grab the door for me. Once inside, I was so impressed by his manners and conversation."
