Being generous and creative motivates the students at Calvary Christian Academy in Or-mond Beach. As part of their annual book fair, Janet Gresham, the school librarian accepted the challenge posed by Scholastic to partici-pate in "One for the Books" program. As part of the book fair, each class in the elementary school was challenged to donate arts & crafts supplies for the "Hugs & Loves Children's Center" at the emergency shelter in addition to the gift of books. Thank You!

This year 26 women were selected for the honor.

Three attorneys who practice law in Volusia County were honored at the FAWL Annual Meeting held in Or-lando on June 22, 2012. They are Elizabeth King, Sylvia Starbuck and Katherine Hurst Miller.
