A student at Highland Elementary School is working to improve the future.
6th grader Emily Farler is doing an individual community problem solving project, entitled “Breaking Boundaries.”
As part of the project, Farler says her goal is to “let students know that they can do anything they want and go anywhere in life!”
Farler helps tutor younger students, gives inspirational speeches, and even helps parents find resources to get GEDs in an effort to improve the quality of childrens’ home lives.
She encourages fellow classmates to work toward overcoming the financial state in which they are surrounded.
She won first place in the individual category of the state Governor’s Cup competition, and will be moving on to the international competition in Wisconsin in June.
