BHMS 8th-Grade Student Kenny Jackson on the Kelly Clarkson Show!

Kenneth “Kenny” Jackson appeared on the Kelly Clarkson Show (5:20) last week for his efforts in a neat service project he did for his 13th birthday. Kenny chose a non-profit called Eco Sneakers, an organization that recycles, reduces, and reuses shoes to donate to those in need as well as repurpose shoes to make athletic surfaces. Being really into sneakers himself and seeing a need, Kenny jumped right into supporting this effort. He raised over $1,200 in one month from family and friends, exceeding his goal. This is a fantastic way to implement the IB Learner Profile trait of Caring. Great job, Kenny! We are so proud of you!
