Two Teaneck High School students were recognized by the Board of Education after turning in cash and checks they found.
Christopher Garlington, a Teaneck senior, was walking home from school when he found an envelope containing cash and checks misplaced by a township resident, said Teaneck High School Principal Dennis Heck. Garlington brought the envelope to school so the owner could be contacted.
Another student, junior Sharice McKoy, found $220 in a girls’ bathroom and turned in the money so it could be returned to another student.
McKoy and Garlington received a Teaneck Public Schools Apple Pin in recognition for being good Samaritans, Heck said.
