Baedyn Drosdeck is a young man with a big heart. At the age of 11, the Baler Primary School student is already showing great maturity that has impressed people around him, especially at Hedland Little Athletics, where he is an enthusiastic participant and helper.
Observers tell us that Baedyn shows great spirit at the club, always pitching in to help set up early in the morning and pack away after each session. But what is even more impressive is his passionate support for other kids, especially the younger ones. This even extends to running alongside them to urge them on to finish their events.
His contribution to the club this year was recognised with the president’s award.
Baedyn’s mum Michelle says he is always looking out for younger kids and encouraging them to do their best, even at home where he is an invaluable help with his baby sister.
Baedyn certainly fits the definition of a Local Leader and we look forward to seeing his contribution to his local community continuing as he gets older.
If you know someone like Baedyn whose efforts are worth celebrating – maybe it’s another young person who displays excellent leadership, a colleague, friend, grandparent or sports coach – nominate them today. All it takes is a few moments to help us celebrate the amazing people shaping our Hedland community.
