Sixth grader Riley Corcoran has a kind heart.
She jumps in to offer whatever assistance she can when she notices a need.
Riley shoveled the driveway only the other day when the snow came to the town with a heavy, wet blanket.
She went over and began cleaning it after noticing that her neighbor's driveway was still covered.
She then proceeded to the following and subsequent driveways. Four driveways were cleaned that day thanks to Riley's leadership, which inspired two other neighborhood girls to follow suit and assist her in finishing the chores.
The only public recognition a do-gooder receives for their actions is the thanks of the individual they assisted.
This time, though, Bill Soesbe, the owner of the house at the beginning of Riley's first driveway, wrote on social media about how grateful he was for Riley's kindness.
He wrote in the article, "This is one of the reasons I respect and appreciate living in Waverly." She is a neighborhood youngster, not one of my kids, who decided to plow my driveway on her initiative. I did not inquire. I simply glanced outside and saw her performing it. She refused my offer of compensation, despite my best efforts. Thank you for your thoughtful action!
According to Soesbe, recognizing such deeds of kindness performed by children improves the general mood in the neighborhood.
He said, "That's not the first time she's done that.”
Riley is the middle child of Waverly residents Chris and Jessica Corcoran. When the chance arises, she enjoys lending a helping hand to others. Her younger brother and older sister also contribute when they can.
Riley is completely active in all W-SR Middle School has to offer as far as school is concerned.
Because arithmetic provides "one answer, one solution," she adores it. She participates in basketball, volleyball, and softball as well as singing in the choir and playing the flute in the school band. She also enjoys performing in the yearly school musical. She portrays a tree in this year's "The Wizard of Oz," and in last year’s “Lion King,” she played a gazelle.
