Club recognizes Rotary Honor Student Eliah Edelson

Sedona Red Rock High School senior Eliah Edelson (2nd right), selected as a Rotary Honor Student, received a $1,000 scholarship to attend the college of her choice. Her teacher Karyl Goldsmith (far right) introduced Eliah by highlighting a project she spearheaded with four other students to talk about issues such as cyber bullying and how awful it is. Eliah said she is the happiest when she is creating and really enjoys creating things with others. "I like putting smiles on people's faces," she said. As a matter of fact, her senior exhibition is making a comic book, including the script, storyboarding, drawing the images, inking, and printing. The thesis of her paper is "How cartoonist's personalities and life experiences are reflected in their works via dialogue, style, and content." Eliah announced she has been accepted to Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Ore. "I'm very, very excited about my future," she said. "The thing I want most in life is to be able to change lives with my work, to help kids feel comfortable in their own skin, and even to be inspiring to adults or teenagers." Also in the photo (L-R) is Club President Jennette Bill and Eliah's mom Elaine.

Little brains experience 90% of their development before their owners reach kindergarten. Studies show that reading to preschool children makes a significant difference to a child's success in school. The Dolly Parton Imagination Library program, which mails age-appropriate books each month to registered children from birth to age 5 free of charge, has been shown to make a difference in the communities in which it is available.
 
It costs less than $30 to provide books for one child for a year!
