Last week, several students were talking about what superpower they’d want to have. While his friends said they wanted to fly or time travel, Galbraith said his superpower would be to “make everyone be kind always.”

“You can have friends and be fun,” Galbraith explained when asked why he enjoys school. He noted that “we don’t want to hurt other people’s feelings,” which is why it is so important to him to be kind.

When Galbraith isn’t at school, he enjoys playing with his friends and brothers in the backyard. He has never met someone who wasn’t a friend, and he enjoys spending time with his buddies. While he has a few years to decide what he wants to be when he grows up, Galbraith already knows he will be a police officer.

Congratulations to Brock for this recognition by ECUSD7 and Gerard Fischer!
