Emanuel, Michael and the Cooks

Last Thursday, StarShine Academy celebrated its 10th anniversary of what is called the 100th Monkey Breakfast. I’ll let Jan explain the meaning of that. Suffice to say it is an opportunity to thank and encourage supporters and volunteers. As usual, it was a great success. I was there with some volunteers and supporters from St. Barnabas Episcopal Church.

High School students Emanuel and Michael greeted us at the ‘sign in and pick up your name tag’ table. Dory Rockcastle assisted them. The boys were polite and made us feel welcome. The boys looked great in their new yellow StarShine shirts.

The StarShine supporters were served breakfast by students in grades 3rd through 7th. They took their job seriously and looked adorable in their tall white chef hats.

Emanuel, Michael and the Cooks represented the beautiful faces of StarShine Academy. Their manners were perfect; they were respectful and helpful in every way. I would put them up against any student attending any expensive prep school.
