The meaning of Warrior is a brave or experienced soldier or fighter. Shoni Anderson, an 8 yr.-old resident of Mt. Zion, along with her mother Becky Anderson, were guests at the Arthur CUS #305 Knightly Reading Family Literacy Event on Friday, January 19. They visited Atwood-Hammond Grade School from 12:30-1:00; Arthur Grade School 1:30-2:00; and Lovington Grade School 2:30-3:00.
Shoni, a second grader at Mt. Zion, wrote a children’s book Warrior Princess to help others by sharing her experience with cancer. The project took about five months to complete. Shoni and her mother explained her experience and answered questions ffrom students K-5. Anderson read her book aloud to the students and they learned the reason for the title: Warrior Princess. She also signed books for those who wanted to purchase one. Shoni and her mother made a big impression on the students as well as the teachers and administration.
