The second part of tonight's dinner meeting was dedicated to recognizing Kyle Sullivan, an 8th grader at Maple Point Middle School, as our Student-of-the-Month for November.
However, before having a chance to be introduced and tell us about himself, Kyle was called on to pull tonight's winning 50-50 ticket.
When the number was read, Fred Edelman first acknowledged he held the winning ticket and then donated the value of the gift certificate he recieved to the Club's fund that is being accrued to support A Woman's Place in Doylestown … which provides comprehensive free, private and confidential services, support, education, shelter, and advocacy for the victims of domestic violence and their children.
Student-of-the-Month and Year chair Augie Adrid next introduced Kyle Sullivan.
This amazing young man then told us a bit about himself; a junior black belt, member of the Senior Demo team and testing to ultimately become an instructor in Karate; playing the clarinet in the school band, signing in the choir, participating in musicals, and will be trying out for a part in the upcoming performance of "Aladdin"; presently serving as president of the school's student council which coordinates school dances and organizes a food drive which donates food to thirty needy Neshaminy families; recently won first place in the Patriot's Penn essay contest; worked at the polls on election day for the third straight year; and believes, "There is no substitution for hard work."
His mom, Lisa, then related a moving story about Kyle and his concern for the feelings of others at the expense of receiving personal accolades a trait that spoke volumes about his character.
Then came award time where Kyle received a Certificate of Recognition
