Please Congratulate and give a warm Kiwanis Welcome to our Student of the Month Andres Akerlundh from Emory Elementary. Andres teacher writes, he has a positive attitude, always wearing a smile. Andres is always willing to help to assist his classmates with anything they need help in. Andres Math skills are Impressive, and it’s his favorite subject. His teacher believes he deserves this award because no matter what he is doing, whether it be difficult, new, easy, boring, he puts forth his best effort, and persevere until he’s satisfied with his work.
He has donated his money to el Teleton, an organization in
Mexico, which supports the rehabilitation of disabled children. As quoted from Andres “ I think we should thank our parents because we have some stuff, electronics, that some don’t have. My dad always says ‘Help them, imagine yourself in their shoes in their life” This young man indeed deserves this award with such deep thoughts and concerns for others at such a young age.
