recognizes outstanding kids in our community
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – I am extremely proud to announce that as part of one of our newest initiatives, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office “Great Kids” Program, Kyle Caudill of West Shore Junior/Senior High School has received our first ever “Great Kids” Award.
The “Great Kids” Program was started to recognize outstanding kids in our community who constantly show respect for their peers, help others in a time of need, maintain a strong academic standard and represent themselves, their family and their school with great character and pride.
All too often in today’s society we focus our resources and time on those that don’t do it right, while kids who go above and beyond tend to go unrecognized. The “Great Kids” Program is facilitated in partnership with School Resource Officers and Deputies throughout Brevard County and Brevard Public Schools.
Kyle is a Junior at West Shore Junior/Senior High School who stands out as an exceptional humanitarian and student that is dedicated, not only to his academic career at West Shore, but also to several community based service projects.
In trying to help others Kyle has previously organized a Christmas Toy Drive that has collected over $2000 worth of toys to benefit the Children’s Home Society.
In addition, Kyle has also been responsible for organizing a book drive called “Rolling Readers” that benefits Brevard Schools by collecting new and used books to fill the school libraries.
And as if that were not enough, Kyle has also been involved in several other community service projects to include another book drive organized by the National English Honor Society, of which Kyle is a member and also a service project with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes planting trees, plants and flowers in the community.
Kyle is a proud athlete who plays basketball at West Shore and volunteers his free time to assist coaching Junior High basketball players. He is an extremely bright student who is constantly looking to help others. Essentially, Kyle is a very humble young man who has a huge giving heart.
Please join me in congratulating Kyle for being our first “Great Kids” Award recipient and in commending him for everything he does to help others in his community and school.
I would like to also thank School Resource Office Valerie Butler of the Melbourne Police Department and Principal Rick Fleming of West Shore for nominating Kyle for this prestigious award.
