MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Editorial by Tracey Rogers, Vice President and General Manager of WMC Action News 5:

In this day in time when young people often grab the headlines because of something negative or bad, I was thankful to receive an email recently from a very proud high school basketball coach.

On April 22, the Mitchell High School Lady Tigers basketball team distributed 75 prayer bears to patients at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital. The project was spearheaded by senior guard Zakiyyah Withers.

Thank you coach Derek Hunter for sharing this incredible act of kindness performed by your team. I know you are proud of these young women and so am I.

If you know of a young person doing something good, setting a positive example or helping others, please let me know.

You can email me at abettermidsouth@wmctv.com, or post the information to my Facebook page, A Better Mid-South.

The Mitchall High School Lady Tigers are making this A Better Mid-South and you can to -- follow their example and do something kind for someone else.
