WHAT'S NEW AT THE SMHA?

IN HIS OWN WORDS

Walking into the KAD Korner Store at CM Allen was a blast from the past! I remember going to the after school program every week Monday through Thursday. For me it was a place to make new friends, get help with homework, and just have fun! The best part about KAD was having someone like Bonnie to help keep my brother and I on the right track. At KAD I was given the opportunity to be active in my community, as well as the opportunity to travel around Texas. Bonnie instilled in me the importance of helping others, as well as the value of work ethic from volunteering for Meals on Wheels at Allen Woods during the summer program. After volunteer work we would go on some amazing field trips — from Enchanted Rock to Pedernales State Park. We even traveled to NASA! Bonnie and the KAD program have exposed me to amazing places I never would have imagined going. I even had the chance to perform at some of the events the KAD Korner Store hosted. One event was the Annual Father's Day Out. I played my trumpet while my brother and father sang songs for the dads that day. The Kids Against Drugs program and Bonnie were key components that helped me navigate through my journey from middle school to high school, for which I am forever thankful. I was a part of the program for about six years. Within those six years, I was molded into the young man I am today. My name is Benito Victor Castillo, age 19, I graduated from San Marcos High School this past year and I am now a full-time student at Austin Community College. I plan to transfer over to Texas State University where I will study Fine Arts. It's been a while since I've been back, but I will never stop visiting the community that gave me memories I will cherish forever.
