Phoenix Middle School eighth grader Brayan Anduaga was caught red-handed doing a great deed at the Southern Lakes Conference Middle School track meet Monday afternoon (May 18).
Darien Elementary School READS Coordinator Betty Blanke said while working the ticket booth at the meet she noticed an elderly lady struggling to carry her chair and other items into the meet.
“She was having a very hard time,” she said. “A young gentleman came along and helped her with everything. He was not asked to do it. He just saw a need and took care of it.”
That’s showing several of the pillars of the Comet Code — being responsible and being respectful. The Comet Code is the behavioral expectations we teach all of our students, and we’re glad to see it in action!
Blanke didn’t know the young man’s name, but Phoenix Athletics Director Adam Nielsen knew who it was and let the staff know via email.
“I am so proud of him. It brought tears to my eyes,” Blanke said. “This is just one of the reasons I am proud to say I work for the Delavan-Darien School District.”
We’re proud of Brayan, too. And, way to go in placing second in the 1,600 meter run! Double #DDCometProud!
The young man’s name is Brayan Anduaga. He is an 8th grader at Phoenix Middle School and also just took 2nd place in the 1600m last night at the Southern Lakes Conference Track Meet!
