Good Kid: Kenny Oaks 9/09/13

His nominator says he has a good heart and just knows how to treat people right.
Every week we recognize a kid in our community doing things to make the world a better place.
That is especially true for this week's Good Kid.
His nominator says he has a good heart and just knows how to treat people right.
And as Traci Teudhope shares with us the two have developed an incredible friendship.

Bryan Kimmy, teachers aid at Union City H.S., said: "Many people have not been very nice to me because of how I am, and how I look, and he has never treated me any different than anybody else."

Bryan Kimmy has cerebral palsy, and with that comes scary health challenges from time to time.
But he's learned that in times of need, he has a great friend to lean on.
You see, he had a seizure inside Union City High School's gym lobby. And the first person he turned to for help was 16-year-old Kenny Oaks.

Bryan, "I came down here because I knew he was down here someplace. I called him and he came to me and I said I just had a seizure and I'm going to need some help getting home."

Kenny Oaks, 16-yrs-old, "I walked down and just helped him. He was real unsteady and I grabbed him by the arm and took him to my buddy's truck and we took him home."

In the end, Bryan was fine. But it meant the world to him to have his friend by his side.

Kenny, "I didn't think too much of it, just that's what friends do, take care of each other, you know."

Bryan, "I don't know what I would do without him. I honestly don't think I'm ever going to be without him because I think we're going to be friends for the rest of our lives."

The feeling's certainly mutual.

Kenny, "It's the best friendship that we could have. He's the best. He's an inspiration to me and a lot of other people."
