STUDENT SPOTLIGHT mable's kile young an artistic athlete


Kile Young is a one-of-a-kind young man who exhibits excellence in everything he does.  Not only is he academically gifted (he has been listed on the Director’s Honor Roll every year and is a member of Mable’s award-winning Academic Pentathlon Team for the third year running), but he excels outside of the classroom as well.  Kile has won many local and state art competitions including first place in contests sponsored by The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, The Council on Aging, Alcohol, Tobacco, Drug and Violence Prevention, and California Dept. of Boating and Waterways.  Kile is currently developing a nonprofit organization called The Charitable Art Project that focuses on enriching the lives of the senior community through art.  In addition to his artistic talents, he is an accomplished student and teacher of sport-judo.  He devotes time weekly to the development of children learning judo through instruction and coaching.  A member of the US Judo Federation Academic Honor Society, Kile currently is ranked third in the United States for his age and weight.  He is also an avid golf and tennis player.  In the running for valedictorian of his eighth grade class, Kile has made an impression on Fairmont and will undoubtedly make a name for himself in his future endeavors.
