Conscientious. Self-starter. Leader. Disciplined. Hard-working. Each of these words was used to describe Brock in the three “Amazing Kid” nominations written on his behalf.
“The dictionary defines character as a person who displays qualities such as honesty, courage and integrity. Others will define character as the actions one takes when no one is watching. Still others will choose to say that character is what makes a person do the right thing even if doing the right thing is not always easy. Whatever definition you choose to use to define character, Brock Mehl embodies all of them,” said Garry Tausch, Brock’s former teacher and wrestling coach.
“Brock excels because he works hard — and I mean hard! He understands that there are no shortcuts to success. Hard work breeds success.”
Brock maintained a 4.0 GPA throughout middle school.
“His ability to look at life and understand, at such a young age, that hard work, values, discipline, and morals will pay off greatly in the future,” said his mom, Jennifer. “He has many heroes and mentors, but to me, he is my hero. He is my amazing kid.”
