BMS 6th grade hero
Sikari White is a 6th grader at BMS and she is now being recognized as a HERO!
Last Sunday, Sikari was swimming with family and many others, at a local pool. She noticed her 8 year old cousin, with autism, was sinking to the bottom of the deep end.
Sikari, who had just learned to swim last summer, jumped in, without hesitation. She swam to the bottom and pulled him to the top of the water and then over to the ladder. She kept talking to him and reassuring him as she got him out of the pool, absolutely saving his life! Once out of the pool, he was out-of-sorts, but kept thanking her and telling her she was his hero.
Her response: "I'm not a hero. I just did what I was supposed to do."
Sikari is a Hero in our book!
