Dr Mike’s daughter Kira is a 5th grader at Brandywine Springs School. Her essay on fire safety in the kitchen was entered anonymously into a contest with all the 5th graders from Red Clay School District. After winning 1st place, her essay was entered into all of New Castle County, where she won 1st place again.
Finally, her winning essay was submitted to the State of Delaware finals at Hartly Fire Company in Hartly, Delaware on January 6, 2013, where Kira won 1st place for the whole state! Congratulations Kira! We’re very proud of you! We’re planning a large bonfire celebration soon!
