Cool Kid Kyle Sweet leads construction project at Westminster High School
WESTMINSTER, Calif. (KABC) -- Kyle Sweet wanted to make an improvement at Westminster High School. The senior saw an agriculture building on his school campus that needed a major facelift.
"It's going to take a lot of skilled workers and a lot of help," said Kyle, who was out to complete his Eagle Scout project. "I wanted to take on a bigger project than a park bench and a tree, like other scouts do sometimes."
The 600-square-foot tack box is a multi-use facility that has been around for quite a while.
"I wanted to do something that really would help people," Kyle said. "This was going to be the biggest help to the farm that my dad went to and probably had the same tack box that they had before I built this one."
Kyle not only has the abilities needed to finish such a huge project, he knows how to lead.
"You see the drive that he has in terms of wanting to help out others from his scouting background and of course talking with him about helping others in the FFA as well," said Dave Eusantos, an instructor at the school.
When construction was finished, Kyle and everyone else saw a big improvement. Things were much better for students and they will be in the future, too.
"Now it's used for basically the same thing, just there's a lot more room for students to take on different projects and do whatever they like to do," said Kyle.
For Cool Kid Kyle Sweet, there is no idea too big or a job that is too small.
