Like his brother, Andrew, two years ago, Kyle Schmidt was the Noblesville High School nominee for the Hamilton County Council on Alcohol and Other Drugs Youth Service Award in his senior year.

“It was interesting,” Schmidt said. “We do a lot of the same things like Fellowship of Christian Athletes and 4-H. I saw how he did it and did it after him.”

Schmidt is a member of the National Honor Society, plays the alto saxophone in the jazz band and also gives weekly saxophone lessons to younger students. Schmidt said his greatest accomplishment has being his participation in 4-H activities and being a 10-year member. He is president of his 4-H Club and has volunteered and assisted with the 4-H Easter Egg Hunt, the Halloween Party and helps with the 4-H Call Out Day and 4-H Ag Day, which teaches elementary students how agriculture affects our everyday lives.

“4-H has taught me so many life skills, work ethic, caring for animals, how to spend my time and how to be responsible,” he said. “I’ve also done a lot of community service. It’s not about yourself but serving others and you can grow a lot that way.”

Schmidt is active in his church by helping to pack and deliver food to needy families, visiting nursing homes and assists with other outreach programs. He also participates in the annual Hamilton County Passion Play, “Behold The Lamb.”

“Kyle is a wonderful young man and through his participation in Fellowship of Christian Athletes, 4-H and his church group, he exhibits a commitment to developing good character and values in his school and community at large and serves as an example to his peers,” Stephanie Stoffel, Schmidt’s school counselor said.

Schmidt plans to attend Purdue University and has been accepted to the school’s Veterinary Scholars Program, which provides early admission to the graduate school program. He wants to be a mixed-animal veterinarian that treats small and livestock animals.

Seven high school seniors were honored as their school’s nominee and Hamilton Southeastern High School’s Rachel Brown was named the award winner.
