May 2016 Student of the Month



Kaylea is an outstanding student and her contributions to the Venture campus and community do not go unnoticed. She makes a difference in the lives of Venture students as well as those she works with in the PALS program.


Venture students and teachers start each day hearing Kaylea’s announcements along with her words of encouragement and motivation. She is also very involved in the following: drug free week, the Venture angel tree, a school penny drive, visits to Williams Elementary and creating care packages for victims of human trafficking. At Williams, Kaylea helped to create a puppet show about being a good friend and not being judgmental.


Kaylea is a source of pride for the entire Venture community.


Congratulations, Kaylea!
