When three boys — Jason Burgess, age 10; Malachi Shelton, age 10; and LaMont Kirkesy, age seven — found a box containing $100 while they were playing in a park in Warren, Michigan, they made sure to give the money and box to a responsible adult: Carol Fame, Jason’s grandmother. She found a $10 check that was made out to the nearby First Church of Jesus Christ and returned the money, check, and donation box to the church, which will use the money for its Christmas service. In December 2013, Warren Mayor Jim Fouts gave the three boys mayoral resolutions at city hall to celebrate their honesty. Mayor Fouts said, “What a wonderful Christmas gift you have given to all of the young people in the metro area. And that is you serve as models of honesty and integrity.” Ms. Fame said, “It’s amazing. All the attention these three are getting shows that doing good things, you know, they get rewarded for it. So that’s pretty awesome.” Mayor Fouts said, “I think this is as much a tribute to these young men as being [role] models as it is to the kind of parents they have. And I want to encourage that.”
