PRINCIPAL KENAN SENER ALSO RECEIVED A SPIRIT OF DISCOVERY AND IMAGINATION AWARD IN DESTINATION IMAGINATION
“What a hugely pleasant surprise to see Mr. Kenan Sener helping us with DI. Fulton Science Academy has been so generous with GADI this year, stepping up at the last minute to offer their school to us for the regional tournament. That aside, what better way to set an example of volunteering to students and to the community than by volunteering his time. It is the impact he has to the children and to the community for which I [we] am inspired to nominate Mr. Kenan Sener for the Spirit of DI Award for the 2015-2016 season.”
The Spirit of Discovery & Imagination Award honors those demonstrating outstanding and extraordinary levels of spirit; whose sacrifices are not for themselves, but for others. Destination imagination proudly recognizes Mr. Sener as a superior role model in spirit, sportsmanship, and volunteerism.
