Let’s Start the Year with a Little Kindness
Belle Lindsley, is a senior volleyball player from Ellsworth High School. Recently she had some serious medical issues. She cannot play her senior year because of a brain bleed she encountered before the season. This week, their opponent, Republic County, gave Belle flowers to show their respect and support of all that she’s been through. The card on the flowers read, “We are thinking of you Belle across the state of Kansas!” Please watch the 30-second video below.
Joe’s Perspective: As we get into the intensity of the fall schedule – rivalries, competition and the desire to win – let’s not forget that other things matter more. Things like sportsmanship, compassion and kindness. When someone else is struggling, lend a helping hand. When someone else is hurting, show them that you care. To the players and coaches at Republic County High School, kudos to you. This was a class act.
