CARE Award – December 2016

Canby Kiwanis and the Canby Business Community are pleased to announce the following Canby Area Recognition of Excellence (C.A.R.E.) Award recipient:

Adam Dwight, Building Tech at Carus Elementary School.

Randee Onion nominated Adam for the award because he helped bring science fiction to Carus.

Adam has been instrumental in helping a student, who is battling cancer, attend class remotely. He worked with the technology department and the ESD to create a "robot" that allows the student to participate in class through an iPad and motorized "body." This device allows the student to participate in class, see and interact with his classmates, and to join discussions.

"You can tell he is happy to be with us by the smile that fills his little robot face," explained Onion. "This is all possible because of Adam. He went out of his way, above and beyond, to bring this student back to Carus. For this he deserves to be celebrated."

Congratulations, Adam.

If you know a teacher, counselor, coach or support staff that has made a difference in your life, the life of a child, or in our community, consider nominating him/her for a CARE Award. You can find the nomination form here.
