Every compliment or act of kindness is a small yet significant way to acknowledge an individual’s importance within a community. These gestures are not rewarding only for those being recognized but also for people like Daniel Ahmadizadeh, who show their appreciation.
I’ve noticed lately that there have been a lot of Facebook pages popping up in which students post about Stony Brook. Whether it’s Stony Brook Compliments, Stony Brook Suggestions or Stony Brook Secrets, it seems like everyone has something to say about our school, for better or for worse.
Stony Brook Compliments stepped out of the Facebook world and into the real one on Feb. 1, 2013, to thank and recognize Zamir, a dedicated and loved Dunkin Donuts worker, on behalf of Stony Brook students.
