His favorite high school memory: Going on my first Kairos retreat because it was something that I never did before and I had no clue what it was going into it, but turned out to be one of the best experiences of my life. Kairos helps kids reach out to other kids in the school and create relationships for a lifetime so that’s why I believe it’s very important for high schools to have it.
