Kerr Kat’s Efforts Are All Heart
Kerr Elementary second grader Ja’Nyha Brown saw a need and put her persuasive writing skills into action.
Brown learned the art of persuasive writing in Ms. Clark’s class and wrote a letter to Kerr Principal Janet Doughty, asking if the student body could have a jeans day to raise money to help children whose family homes had flooded. Of course, Doughty said yes.
Brown was all smiles when she presented a check for more than $243 to Homeless and Migrant Liaison Arcenia Anthony with Bossier Parish Schools. Anthony was most impressed by the second grader’s selflessness and desire to help others in their time of need.
The money raised will go into Bossier Parish Schools’ Flood Relief Fund to assist school children with needs their families are unable to provide, such as uniforms, undergarments, shoes, backpacks and school supplies.
Way to go, Ja’Nyha, for taking action. It goes to show you are never too young to make a difference.
