Karina Del Cid Flores, a 4th grader taught by Ms. Lampert and Mrs. Gayle at Hambrick Elementary School, was a winner of the DeKalb Reading Council award. Her essay, "What America Means To My Education," was nominated for the state's Lindy Lopez-Butner Award. This award is given to second language learners who have been influenced by reading. The photographs show her being honored at the annual Georgia Reader of the Year Awards ceremony in Byron, GA.
Karina will be honored later this year in a special ceremony for DeKalb County School Disctrict winners.
