Emily Lang fills her days with service—to children and adults alike. A fifth-grade student at Crescent Harbor Elementary School in Oak Harbor, Washington, she has served as chairman of the school’s Fill The Bus food drive. She also has been president of her school’s K-Kids club, which is part of Kiwanis International’s service and leadership program for elementary school students. In addition, Emily has been awarded the Bronze Junior Girl Scout Award. She even volunteers as a teacher’s assistant before school, helping the kindergarten teacher prepare—and during her lunch recesses, you can find Emily reading to first grade students or serving as a “Shelf Elf” in the school library.
