Quote from teacher: “Kenny is one of those students who gives willingly of himself,” said Shane Dyer, English teacher. “He doesn’t volunteer his time for any recognition, but because he understands the power of helping others. In the classroom, Kenny is helpful, cheerful, and always makes the classroom an enjoyable experience.”
