Kendall was nominated by Ms. Kelly Blais who said, “I have seen Kendall grow as a student and as a member of the school community over the past few years. She has worked very hard, not only academically, but to uplift and motivate her peers around her. She is always positive and even developed, on her own, a kindness project throughout our COVID year of school, to encourage others to “Keep Going” and “Think Positively.” Kendall is an optimistic force in school and throughout all of the sports and out-of-school activities that she does. She is an amazing human being and well deserving of this recognition.”
Kendall will attend college in the fall and plans to major in Marketing/Communications. Congratulations Kendall!
