Our Selah students do amazing things and today’s Thumbs-Up is for Elin Gavic, a fourth-grader in Jacqlyn Scoggin’s classroom at Selah Intermediate School.
Elin has received a Gnomination from the Selah Downtown Association for her impact and contributions to her school community. Elin holds the prestigious honor of being the first student to receive a Gnomination from the Association. Here’s why: Earlier this fall, the 3-D printer in the school’s MakerSpace Program broke, making it unusable to students and their projects. Understanding the challenge that the lack of a 3-D printer posed to learners, Elin found a solution. Elin took the initiative to bake loaves of homemade bread and with her parents help created a campaign to sell it on social media platforms. As the orders came in, the funds made from Elin’s bread sale were then donated back to the school and used for the purchase of a new MakerSpace printer and applicable supplies. Elin’s selfless act has benefited her fellow Selah Intermediate schoolmates who can once again use the printer for their project needs.
A big thanks to Elin Gavic and her contributions to Selah Intermediate School! She definitely deserves a Thumbs-Up! Make that two Thumbs-Up!
