The latest round of Promise Kids continues to draw positive media attention, this time from the Salem Statesman Journal.
An article this week features students Madison Haines, a seventh-grader at Stephens Middle School, and Kaleya Postell, a kindergartner at Yoshikai Elementary. Both schools are in the Salem-Keizer School District.
The girls are among 27 students from Salem-Keizer schools who will appear on the website from now through 2016. Salem-Keizer is one of nine school districts that photographers and videographers from the Promise team visited this fall. Salem-Keizer School Board Member Chris Brantley also visited Stephens during photography to observe the campaign work firsthand.
Madison’s Promise statement is: “I am the Promise of Oregon because I want to help kids find books that interest them so they have the experience I have while reading.”
Kaleya made this her Promise statement: “I am the Promise of Oregon because I love learning so I can one day be a teacher to others and help them learn words and their ABCs.”
