Kiwanis Honors Longden Elementary School Students

by Jerry Jambazian

 Temple City –

The Kiwanis Club of Temple City recognized three outstanding students from Longden Elementary School. Accompanying the students is their teacher Mr. Bruce Bremer.

Nilo is 11 years old and has a younger brother.  He enjoys playing soccer, football, and basketball.  Nilo said, “The best things about Longden are my math and science classes, the teachers I have had during my years at Longden have been great and supportive.”  The best thing that ever happened was having his family together again. Personal goals are to stop hunger in the world, build a school for poor kids in the world to have an education like him, get into a good college, get better at math, and help his community.

Jason is 11 years old and four brothers and sisters.  He enjoys playing soccer, basketball, bike riding, and repairing old cars.  Jason said, “The best things about Longden are my teachers Mr. Bremer and Mr. Shahoian, and all my friends.”  The best thing that ever happened was progressing and getting better grades. Personal goals are to stop cancer, build a house, play football in college, and be a better person.

Tyler is 11 years old and enjoys running and playing Legos.  Tyler said, “The best things about Longden are my classes, friends, and Ms. Chang’s class.” If he could change one thing it would be to have more patience. Personal goals are to build a truck, get a cool car, make new friends, and go to Oak Avenue in the fall.

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 Mid Valley News, and displayed in the Temple City Unified School District lobby.
