The Kiwanis Club of Temple City honored two outstanding students from Cloverly Elementary School. Pictured with the proud students is longtime teacher Mrs. Pat Wenzel.
Eugene is 12 years old and in Mrs. Andrea Saldana’s class. He has an older brother and enjoys playing sports, basketball and football. Eugene said, “The best things about Cloverly are the great teachers, fun activities, and the safe environment.” The best thing that ever happened was winning the MVP award and championship of his basketball league. Personal goals are to change the healthcare system in our country, have world peace, graduate from a university, become successful in whatever career he has, and become a professional athlete.
Tabitha is 11 years old and in Mrs. Sally Stoke’s class. She enjoys swimming and reading mystery books. She is a member of the El Monte Shark’s Aquatic Club. Tabitha said, “The best things about Cloverly are the great teachers that make me feel a part of a family, all my friends that comfort me when I’m not happy, and the great field trips.” The best thing that ever happened was being adopted from China into a loving family. Personal goals are to build a time machine to see how life was in colonial times, go to the Junior Olympics in swimming next year, read the Bible from beginning to end, do better in schoolwork and grades.
Each week the Temple City Kiwanis Club is pleased to recognize outstanding students and their teachers from Cloverly, Emperor, Longden, Oak Avenue, and the Dr. Doug Sears Learning Center. Kiwanis treats students and their teacher to lunch. Students receive a certificate, a letter for their parents, a bumper sticker, a gift certificate from The Hat Restaurant, and a photograph of them receiving their award. Their photo will also be published in Temple City Life, Mid Valley News, Temple City Tribune, and displayed in the Temple City Unified School District lobby.
