Emma P. of Severn Elementary School was honored earlier this week by the C-PP Board of Education for "Excellence in Action." Emma was nominated by Severn Art teacher Ms. Katherine Miller and Severn Librarian Ms. Jennifer Taylor. They said Emma, "Showed leadership and initiative in starting a book club at Severn." Ms. Taylor said, "Emma is a student whose actions inspire others. She loves to read and wanted to share that passion with others in her class. She hung up posters about the book club and went to each fifth grade class and made morning announcements." In the photo, joining Emma, is Severn Librarian Ms. Taylor and Board of Education member Ms. Janelle Meteer, who told the Board and audience about Emma's accomplishment.
