Manuel not only shines athletically, he earned a 3.791 – Unweighted GPA and a 4.114 – Weighted GPA. However, he has truly distinguished himself with a recent achievement, earning the rank of Eagle Scout, which only about 4% of boy scouts ever achieve.  Part of becoming an Eagle Scout is earning a total of 21 merit badges, organizing and completing a community service project. Kyle has been involved with scouts since 2006, when he joined as a cub scout.

Kyle’s Eagle Scout project was the construction of a butterfly garden at Challenger K-8 in memory of the Challenger space shuttle disaster victims.
