On the first day the 2015-2016 school year District Technology Support Technician Kendrick Chiles came to rescue of parent Marianne Preudhomme. As she was picking up her child at Blythewood Middle School, bystanders alerted Marianne that her car was rolling backwards in the carpool lane. Without hesitation, Kendrick asked her to throw him the keys, and he sprinted off after the car. He chased it down for nearly two blocks and was able to hop in and stop it as it approached a a curb and a post. His quick actions prevented a car accident and potential injury.
