A Charlotte High School student was home with his great-grandmother when she became injured after a fall and was not able to get up. Dade Austin, a senior at CHS, went to a neighbor’s home for help. His great-grandmother was taken to the hospital, where she remained for several days.
Dade was presented with the Do the Right Thing award by the Punta Gorda Police Department.
