Student Spotlight: Laniyah

Welcome to a new series for the Learning Leopard Library blog – Student Spotlight. Check out Student Spotlight posts to learn more about some of the students that make the Johnson Elementary School Library so awesome!

Today’s spotlight is on Laniyah, a Johnson second grader. I’m not exaggerating when I say that Laniyah is one of the hardest working students I’ve ever met. Her teachers agree that her focus and determination are second to none. She worked on her Scholarship Essay for three days, and wrote it in her very best handwriting.

Laniyah is a dedicated reader, and she shared this in her Scholarship Essay. “Reading is fun and I love it so much,” she said. “Reading helps me learn.”

The Book Fair Scholarship Committee reads through student essays with names hidden for unbiased voting. Laniyah’s essay received the most votes, making her our Grand Prize Scholarship Winner! She was so excited, she was too speechless for an interview – but a picture is worth a thousand words.


Congratulations to Laniyah, our Spring Book Fair Grand Prize Scholarship Winner! Your hard work and dedication bring so much to the Johnson family. Keep up the amazing work!

Thank you so much for your help in funding our Book Fair Scholarship Program. Thanks to your help, many hard working Johnson students like Laniyah will have books of their own to enjoy over the summer, helping them to become better readers and more successful students.
