Valley High School student makes plans to conduct workshop on diverse cultures with Valley Elementary students



Elora Williams, 2024 Valley graduate-to-be, is initiating a unique community service project rooted in her youthful experience of having lived in Vienna, Austria, while growing- up during ages two - five, and again from nine - 14, when her dad, Christian, was serving as Vice President of Virtue Paintball conducting competitions throughout Europe. Her classes there were conducted in German. With an eye of creating a 40-hour project toward achieving a Gold Award from the Girl Scouts, her proposal has been enthusiastically supported by Valley Elementary School principal, Mary Flanagan.


As Elora explains, “I’m going to be having a six - seven week after school class at Valley Elementary School for grades fourth - sixth. And they’re going to learn a little bit about some different languages and cultures, and play some games. We’re gonna’ eat some food from other countries. We’re gonna’ make some crafts. And the reason why I decided to do this is because I lived in Austria for a few years. I learned to speak German there, and it’s really impacted my life. It brought an understanding of the world. So, I thought it would be cool for the kids around here to have that opportunity. “I’m going to have a couple of guest speakers who know other languages. Mr. Heath [Don], the principal at Valley High School: he’s going to be doing a class on Spanish and, hopefully, I’ll get some other people who speak foreign languages.”


This enlightening seminar promises to be a mind-expanding, joyful encounter for all participants.
