9 PAX showed up at the Tequila Sunrise for what had been planned to be my VQ many months ago (I ended up VQing at the Yank in April). Today was a day of remembrance for me and a time to share the name of someone special to others who did not know him.

2 years ago on May 7th, 2019, 2 students decided to bring guns into a school concealed in instrument cases. When they entered the first classroom (Kendrick’s classroom), Kendrick rushed the armed students pushing them out of the room and took them to the ground. 2 other students were able to disarm the gunmen. Kendrick had been shot.

Kendrick’s actions saved many lives that day. Over 3000 people came to his service and everyone I had met knew him. He was very special. He was the kid who never left another student behind. Always coaching, teaching, encouraging, and loving anyone that needed it (not just his friends). A few months before this tragic event, I had the chance to give Kendrick a challenge coin that we had made for him and other interns at our company. I told Kendrick at that time “You are my hero”. I had no idea how much more of a hero he would become to me.

Kendrick was 18 years old and would have gone on to Colorado State University to study engineering.
