The Christmas season shines light on some of the area’s brightest and most joyful residents. So, this week, we feature a Good Kid eager to share in the season’s festivities.
17 year old Isaiah Quinn jumps at the chance to volunteer at many places around the community, but his school certainly holds a special place in his heart.
Isaiah says, “it’s better to get out in [the] community when you’ore younger and help out anybody that’s in need.”
At the Elizabeth Lee Black School, Isaiah was excited to spread a little holiday cheer by making decorations for the school’s holiday show and celebrations.
Isaiah tells us, “I helped make the snowflakes and stuff and I help talk to kids and find out things they like”.
He also volunteered to play the role of Santa for preschool photos and the high school video.
Executive Vice President Dr. Maureen Barber-Carey tells us, “Isaiah is a leader among our students. He serves as a role model he is very committed to help students, teachers and committed to community… He came to us as a young man who had numerous challenges, but today part time job, full time student and an exemplary student, at that.”
Isaiah is great at multi-tasking and just a joy to be around. For all these reasons and more, Isaiah is this week’s Good Kid.
