THOMASTON — On Wednesday, Nov. 28, several students at Thomaston Grammar School were recognized for the attribute of compassion.

Students were presented with a certificate at a school-wide assembly and will have lunch with the school principal later this month.

Compassion differs from other behaviors because the focus is on caring for others, according to a TGS news release. This is called selflessness, or not thinking or yourself first.

The children being given this award today have a sensitivity to others’ feelings and problems. In many instances, they have shown interest in the welfare of others first, not themselves.

Congratulations to all the TGS students that received awards this month!
