Deana Butcher has faith in good deeds.

The Kickapoo teacher runs a Pay it Forward club with the premise to recognize, promote and perpetuate kindness.

This week, club members catered a luncheon for 100 students who have shown kindness during the school year. Each teacher nominated one student.

“Someone may turn cash that they found into the office. Someone may return a backpack they found. Someone else holds a door open for a handicapped child. Someone else may clean up trash. We try to return these good deeds by letting the child know we appreciate how s/he made the world a little bit better,” Butcher explained in an e-mail.
