A Sparks student is not only shining in the classroom but outside his studies too and he is News Four's Class Act Award Winner for the month of September.
News Four surprised 5th grade student Andrew Burmer during class at Diedrichsen Elementary.
His former and current teachers say he's always willing to step up to help others.
Burmer has spent his free time on more than one occasion helping his school put on a special math night.
His parents say it's not unusual to find him shoveling snow or raking leaves for a neighbor who can't.
Last spring he raised more than 13 hundred dollars for the St. Baldricks Foundation for childhood cancer.
It was double what he raised the year before!
Congratulations to Andrew! If you know of a Class Act email us at the station or send a letter to 1790 Vassar Street Reno, NV 89501
