Brighton High School, home of the Cardinals, was one of the stops we made during our recent trip to Memphis, Tennessee. We spoke to high school students about the many career opportunities available within the transportation and logistics industry. That evening during their Friday night football game, we were honored to present our student achievement award to a very deserving student, Kimmey J.
Brighton High School Student Kimmy J. Receives Achievement Award
R+L Carriers was proud to present our Hometown Showcase Achievement Award to Brighton High School senior Kimmey J. Brighton Assistant Principal and Athletic Director Brian Crowson nominated Kimmey because he regularly demonstrates the character that he expects from all Brighton High School students. Mr. Crowson said
“Kimmey is the same person if he is being supervised by a teacher or walking with friends down the hallway.”
In addition to his outstanding character, Kimmey is a leader on the Brighton High School baseball team where he encourages younger players to perform better and fight through adversity. We asked Kimmey about the personal attributes that set him apart from the rest of his classmates, and he said his generosity and the fact that he is always willing to go out of his way to help others. For example, he described a time he saw an elderly woman struggling with her grocery basket and how he rushed over to help her unload her groceries. This is exactly the kind of giving heart Kimmey demonstrates on a daily basis. His leadership, positive attitude, and friendly personality are qualities that will help him be successful in the future. We’re proud to be able to acknowledge Kimmey and the character he possesses.
