Today’s Kindness Champion is Nyhlia Whittingham! Here is what Nyhlia’s nominator had to say about what makes her a kindness champion: “Nyhlia is an incredible 5th grader. She always does the right thing, even when no one is looking.  She embodies kindness in her daily interactions with other kids and with adults. If someone needs help, she is one of the first to offer assistance. If someone is upset, she is one of the first to comfort. On many times, I’ve seen Nyhlia stand up for what she thought was right, even if it meant disagreeing with her friends – something that most fifth graders are not ready to do. She’s often the first to stand up for someone who is being mistreated, and one of the first to invite someone to join her if they are alone.  Nyhlia is mature, intelligent, and a pleasure to be around. She is an all-around great kid and it’s a pleasure to know her and watch her grow. More kids should be like Nyhlia!”
