TROPHY CLUB – TX | Hope Kindness Community is the local organization that is bringing together the entire community in a joint effort to spread kindness. Beck Elementary School, Lakeview Elementary School, Medlin Middle School, Byron Nelson High School, and the Town of Trophy Club have partnered in the month-long “Campaign 4 Kindness”.
On January 26, 2021, the Town of Trophy Club leadership, along with the BNHS Student Council, came together to kick-off the #Campaign4Kindness movement with a Proclamation at the Town Council meeting. Mayor Alicia Fleury remarked, “As Mayor of Trophy Club, along with Town Council, I’m proclaiming February 2021 as Kindness Awareness Month. We encourage our residents to participate in “Campaign 4 Kindness” in the spirit of compassion, kindness, and goodwill toward all persons.”
Throughout the entire month, there will be events, activities, and daily kindness challenges to accomplish the spreading of goodwill in Trophy Club. Trophy Club schools are going to be challenged to perform Random, as well as Conscious, Acts of Kindness with the goal of inspiring students to choose kindness and prove that every person, regardless of their circumstances, can make a difference in the world. Campaign 4 Kindness virtual presentations will be offered during the month of February and each school has specific plans for the month.
Tammy McClure, Student Leadership Teacher of Byron Nelson High School stated, “The intentionality of Kindness Month is to have a common focus that our town and beyond can experience big results through the small, yet powerful acts of many”. Paige Cantrell, Medlin Middle School Principal says “Teaching and modeling kindness and empathy to our students is an imperative part of helping them be successful throughout life. I love working in a community that understands the importance of being kind to all”. Students will be asking members of the community to join in spreading kindness throughout their workplace, home, and the world.
In addition to the Proclamation, the Town of Trophy Club is hosting a virtual “Fun Run 4 Kindness” February 25th-27th. The goal is to create a massive community (online) gathering to showcase the importance of kindness. Registration will include a t-shirt and swag bag. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes will be awarded and all participants will be recognized. Runners are encouraged to perform acts of kindness in honor of the month and all proceeds will be donated to Support our Soldiers, the local and global service project chosen by students for this year’s campaign
Everyone is encouraged to spread kindness and share their photos on social media by using #Campaign4Kindness and their respective hashtags. Dina Kuhlman, BNHS PTSA says, “Through this Campaign, students, their families, and our residents will be called to action to change their community and the world.”
