Congratulations to Director of Non-Instructional Services, Kevin Dee, on his recent nomination for the prestigious FIRST Robotics Woodie Flowers Award! On top of the countless ways he serves our district throughout the school day, Kevin also acts as a head coach for the high school robotics team and dedicates countless hours to practices, competitions, and team events.
The Woodie Flowers Award specifically recognizes individuals that exhibit and inspire effective communication while challenging students in the fields of science, math, and engineering. Nominations are student led and must be submitted via essay, demonstrating their creativity, enthusiasm, and communication skills. Also considered are the team’s ability to collaborate together, use problem solving skills, and level of participation – all qualities taught and exemplified by the team’s leader.
The South Haven High School Robotics Team has seen great success since the time of its inception 15 years ago under Mr. Dee’s leadership. The team has expanded to over 40 members, has qualified for the state competition year after year, and has even competed at the global level. Students participate in community events, inspire their younger classmates, and explore additional facets of engineering/computer science.
Thank you, Coach Dee, for going above and beyond to not only motivate and inspire our students in FIRST Robotics, but for impacting their lives and instilling in them skills that will make them more employable but also better human beings. Congratulations on this significant nomination.
