The Elijah Straw Memorial Fund

The Elijah Straw Memorial Fund and the entire Straw Family were honored to present O'Hara Elementary School fifth grader Annie Mohn with the twenty-fifth Elijah Straw Helping Hand Award for her exceptional friendship, kindness towards others, overall good citizenship, and most of all, for embodying the core values ("Respect, Responsibility, Integrity") of O'Hara Elementary School. Annie received a certificate of merit and a Barnes & Noble gift card! The Fund will also be donating to the charity of Annie's choice an amount equal to the B&N gift card in Christian's name.

Mr. Ivanusic, Annie's teacher, had this to say about her: 

Annie is highly involved both inside and outside of school, but it is her energy that she uses to build bonds with her peers. She is a student that can work with anyone of any ability and seeks the teacher out, offering to volunteer to help.  She does not let previous issues or concerns bother her and is quick to move on to "let bygones, be bygones." Annie is also sensitive to others' abilities and needs and guides, rather than to "just tell them what to do." She is friendly and easy-going
with both male and female students.

Great work, Annie! We look forward to seeing what she picks up at Barnes & Noble!
