Kristain Mckinney-Heflin – January 2021 Student of the Month

KidsTek’s Student of the Month for January is Kristain Mckinney- Heflin from Aurora Hills Middle School. He is currently taking a virtual KidsTek enrichment class with Instructor Max Lewis. When asked what he enjoys most about KidsTek he said, “I love having fun with the people in the KidsTek class. I love meeting people that are like me and enjoy the same things as me.”

While he enjoys gaming and hanging out with his friends, he also admits he just loves to sleep! Some of his other favorite activities are streaming on Twitch, hanging out in his KidsTek class and learning to code. Program Manager, Meghan Lang, shared, “Kristain is really fun to talk to and teach because he is interested in learning. He enjoys it and is thoroughly entertained by skills he is learning in class.”

Kristain has wanted to join the Marines since he was 4 years old. He told us, “I want to help the country and save people’s lives. I just think it would be a really good thing to do.” KidsTek Instructor Max Lewis nominated Kristain and said, “Kristian has been a delight to have in class and is always eager to discover or try new things. As a student, he is quick, smart and good at inspiring others to do the same!”
