Every­day He­roes Cel­e­brated at Sierra Bonita with Se­na­tor Hen­der­son

Serve Daily - - NEWS -

“Light­ning speed, x-ray vi­sion, and red capes are most com­monly as­so­ci­ated with the world of su­per­heroes. How­ever, stu­dents at Sierra Bonita el­e­men­tary learned that he­roes are more than hu­mans with su­per pow­ers. He­roes are or­di­nary peo­ple do­ing ex­tra­or­di­nary things. On Fri­day, Novem­ber 7, at a school-wide assem­bly, the stu­dent body was priv­i­leged to hear mu­sic, es­says, and sto­ries about every­day he­roes from lo­cal he­roes.

One of those lo­cal ev­ery day he­roes and key­note speaker at the assem­bly, Se­na­tor Dei­dre Hen­der­son, shared a story about her own hero. Alec, a neigh­bor of Se­na­tor Hen­der­son’s was only eight years old when he had the courage to be­come friends with a girl whom ev­ery­one teased. Hen­der­son ex­plained that courage is be­ing brave enough to do some­thing good even if you are scared to do it. She chal­lenged stu­dents at Sierra Bonita to “find the courage to be he­roes.”

Sierra Bonita’s ad­di­tional guest he­roes in­cluded Gra­cie Crowther, Span­ish Fork Lit­tle Miss first at­ten­dant, who in­tro­duced her hero, her sis­ter Halee Crowther, Span­ish Fork Ju­nior Miss. The fi­nal every­day hero and Sierra Bonita el­e­men­tary school prin­ci­pal Mr. Mike Larsen shared “He­roes at Home.” Mr. Larsen told sto­ries of his per­sonal he­roes, his mother and fa­ther.

Also fea­tured at the assem­bly were car­i­ca­ture por­traits, drawn by Pleas­ant Grove stu­dent Jared Slye, of some of the schools every­day he­roes Mr. Andy Wi­ley, Mrs. Dana Beck­ert, Miss Lau­rie Jones, Mrs. Jone Dixon, Mr. Myles Peter­son, Mr. Shane Faw­son, Mrs. Janna Slye, Mrs. Liz Worthen as well as Mr. Mike Larsen and Se­na­tor Dei­dre Hen­der­son.”

Th­ese stu­dents sang a beau­ti­ful song for all to en­joy. Im­por­tant he­roes in our lives may be our par­ents, teach­ers, friends, and as­so­ciates.
