The first time I was able to speak with Kylie Baudino, I reached her mother at a track meet in Swink, Colorado. Sharla Baudino went to find her daughter and handed her the phone. The Rye High School senior was happy to talk to me as she had a couple of hours between events. Although polite and exhibiting a positive nature, Kylie Baudino, who will soon continue her education in math and science at CSU-Pueblo, pretty much stuck to the facts. I imagine she was already focused on the next race.

The second time I reached stay-at-home mother Sharla, I learned more about her exceptional daughter. And I began to realize just how focused this young woman is and has been for most of her life. The 2018 Rye High School Valedictorian, Kane Scholarship recipient, San Isabel Electric Powered-Up Scholarship recipient, and accomplished athlete experienced a fundamental challenge at the beginning of her education. Sharla explained that she and husband, Jerry, knew something was very wrong when youngest child, Kylie, began attending kindergarten. “She cried while trying to learn to read, sometimes throwing her book away in frustration,” explained Sharla.

Suspecting her child had a learning disability described as dyslexia, Sharla met with Kylie’s teacher. The problem was brushed off as common to young readers and would have been left at that without the young mother’s determination. Sharla went to Boards of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) next, finally having her daughter tested privately to establish that she was dyslexic in both numbers and letters.
