Neil Richardson (orange shirt), a senior, receives the "Do the Right Thing" award from DeSoto County School Superintendent Adrian Cline. Richardson stepped up on Sept. 11 when Veterans Honor Guard bugler Roger Bumgarner's trumpet stopped working.

With him are his grandparents. He was nominated for the award by DCHS band director Kevin Durfee.
