To recognize youth who are spreading kindness throughout The American Dream City, Arlington's Community Relations Commission has partnered with local businesses and launched a program that rewards students for their kind hearts.

During a pep rally Friday, Nov. 2 at Corey Academy in Arlington, the Commission surprised two students, Santiago Boor and Adelynn Jarett, with a pair of premium Rangers tickets each. The Commission then announced that a class would receive a Chick-Fil-A catered ice-skating party at Parks Mall because of the acts of kindness they had performed during the school year. Corey students recently decorated their classroom doors in themes that reflected the importance of kindness.

"We want to recognize you two for being super Arlington citizens. You model what we want everyone to be. You help to make Arlington a better place," said Dr. Von Peaks, Community Relations Commission Chair.

The Community Relations Commission has been working to promote acts of kindness among our residents, visitors and business community since Mayor Jeff Williams announced the Kindness Initiative last year. People are encouraged to report acts of kindness that they perform, witness or were the recipient of through the City's Ask Arlington mobile app, on the Acts of Kindness website, or by posting on social media using #ArlingtonKindness and @CityofArlington.
