Kudos for Kyle

By Cassandra Sales, ILS Program Manager

Kyle has been a community member of Fort Bragg all his life. If you spend any time with him, you will learn two things: he knows just about everyone in Fort Bragg and is a respected member of that community, and his positive attitude and smile are just about the greatest treasure you will ever find.

Catalyst for Kindship

Kyle is a catalyst for kinship in his community. Kyle’s heart overflows with love for his family and others, and that is evident in his volunteer work at the Mendocino Coast Humane Society. Every week, he volunteers to socialize kittens and spends time with the older cats that need extra love until they find their furever homes. He’s so consistent with his volunteer work he recently earned his own Humane Society t-shirt for achieving 20 hours of volunteer work.

Impacting Others with Creativity

Kyle is also creative, and many others have benefited from that creativity. He has created a Social Learning Group that meets once a week, virtually every week. During a time when COVID created distance, he utilized his ability and creativity to bring others together for community. It has been a tremendous hit, and his friends look forward to it every week!

Going the Distance for Community

Kyle supports the community even when it means driving 1.5 hours one way to attend the annual Christmas Party in Ukiah. The drive was worth it this year to get a picture with the Director of Legal and Labor and VP of Operations, though! If you want to get to know Kyle, regardless of what region you are in, he encourages you to download the Zello app – it turns cell phones into walkie talkies and he LOVES meeting new friends that way.

A Man of Action

Fun fact about Kyle – his favorite sandwich is peanut butter, pickles, and mayonnaise – might be a great conversation starter on Zello. Kyle doesn’t just talk about goals, he goes after them, and because of him so many lives – both human and animal are more fulfilled. If you are ever in Fort Bragg, Kyle will always be down for a game of basketball, so just look for him at the courts! Kyle is a man of action. His heart is evident in everything he does, and there just isn’t enough positive words to go around for this fine young man. Kudos, Kyle!
