Rylee is a 12-years-old girl with autism. She, more than most, understands the pain associated with bullying. So, this brave young lady took to advocating for all who are bullied by educating kids and organizations about the importance of using words that don't hurt or offend individuals with disabilities, of different races, religions or sexual origins. Her goal is to ensure that no child endures pain because of bullying.
Rylee's public speaking on the subject has inspired hundreds of kids to take the "Choose Wise Words" pledge. She is taking a stand against bullying one child and one pledge at a time.
It is for all these reasons that Rylee has been selected for our prestigious Kenny Suttner Award. She encompasses everything we look for in candidate for this prestigious honor.
Congrats Rylee!!! Keep up the good work.
