Students Aid Competitor to Finish Race


“My name is Kim Jordan. My son, Kiam Jordan, was running in the State Cross Country race. Liam fell and pulled a muscle in his leg. He didn’t think he would be able to finish, but two boys from your school district helped my son. They cheered him on, grabbed his arm to help him continue, and made sure my son finished the race. I have nothing but gratitude for these athletes. I want to give them a shout out. So far, I have learned that one of the students’ names is Joshua Dixon from Forest Hill and the other is Bernard Duncan from Callaway. I would like to personally thank the school district for having such compassionate students and would like to thank the parents of these students. I have already emailed the principals at each school to let them know. Thanks so much!”
