Zoe Griffith showed KINDNESS when she ran House Games supplies over to the MiLL for Dean Booker. Zoe….you are awesome!!!

Alex Lahners demonstrated COURAGE and PASSION when he shared his journey with Type I Diabetes. He helped us understand experiments more when he discussed a study he is involved in.

Hanna Lee, Sofia Moncada, Sun Kyu Lee, Annabelle Eaton, and Bella Chiemprabha all demonstrated TEAMWORK when they helped Dr. Arriaga and Mrs. Velandia set up and decorate a Cannon booth for the Concord International Festival this past Saturday. They also showed PASSION and COURAGE as they talked to festivalgoers about Cannon and the diverse groups that make up our community. Thank you all for making this event a big success!
