is 12 years old and in Mrs. Wenzel, Mrs. Tenny, and Mrs. Saldana’s class. She has a younger brother and enjoys playing the violin and playing with her friends.  Alia said, “The best things about Cloverly are my friends, the wonderful teachers, and the amazing extra curricular activities.”  The best thing that ever happened was moving to Hawaii in 2006.  If she could change one thing it would be that everyone would be equal. Personal goals are to build a time-traveler, be friendly to everyone, to help others, and to not read so much.

He has a younger sister and enjoys watching YouTube.  Benjamin said, “The best things about Cloverly are Friday mornings in class, recess, and P.E..”  The best thing that ever happened was going to Disneyland.  If he could change one thing it would be to read the Percy Jackson series earlier. Personal goals are to build another Mount Olympus, get better grades, become a good cook, and be in a movie.

Each week the Temple City Kiwanis Club is pleased to recognize outstanding students and their teachers from Cloverly, Emperor, Longden, Oak Avenue, and the Dr. Doug Sears Learning Center.  Kiwanis treats students and their teacher to lunch.  Students receive a certificate, a letter for their parents, a bumper sticker, a gift certificate from The Hat Restaurant, and a photograph of them receiving their award.  Their photo will also be published in Temple City Life, Mid Valley News, Temple City Tribune, and displayed in the Temple City Unified School District lobby.

Temple City Kiwanis has been serving our community since 1939.  Members are dedicated men and women who desire to make a difference in the quality of life for the youth of Temple City.  Kiwanis meets at 12:00 noon each Tuesday at Denny’s Restaurant.  To find out more about Kiwanis, please call Jerry Jambazian at (626) 286-2444.  You can also visit their website at
