FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Nineteen year old Kevin Galindo is used to giving it his all in bowling, athletics and softball as a Laredo area athlete. He joined SOTX when he was in elementary school. Now a senior at Cherish Center (vocational school), his teacher said he is more social and over the years, has learned to accept his wins and losses just the same.
Galindo is non-verbal, but that doesn’t stop him from sharing his love of life and staying as active as possible. He works after school every day and loves to dance, go fishing and even participates in karaoke. He also makes sure to attend the local fishing derby each year.
Those who know Galindo say he is always smiling. With a winning attitude like his, it’s probably a smile that lights up an entire room.
