Special girl and Edeline to meet
Note from Byron: Not only did this 11-year-old Starling take a first in the Essay Contest but she has been doing remarkable things for Haiti as shown below. She will meet Edeline at the Opening Ceremonies of the 2011 Starlings National Tournament.
From Director Mary Beiler:
I just wanted to recognize one of our 12s players. Cassidy Lane, 5th grader, Santee 12s Jeff, was so moved by Edeline’s story about the school that she not only entered the Literary Art contest but has been doing her own fundraising to help donate to the cause. She made brownies and chocolate covered strawberries for one of the tournaments and raised $60 for the project. She is still working on other fundraisers now to raise more.
