Elkin Presbyterian appreciates Elkin Elementery students’ stewardship

The Rev. Stuart Taylor, pastor of Elkin Presbyterian Church and coordinater of Watershed NOW, shows the church’s appreciation of the student initiated MEGA environmental club from Elkin Elementary School during an Earth Day celebration Saturday at the church. “With music and good food and lots of environmental education, we’re learning how to be better stewards of the earth that God’s given us,” said Taylor, who was eager to recognize the efforts of the students. “We want to lift them up and support them and encourage them to be better stewards then the older generation has been.” Second-grader Elaina Brown said, “I think it’s a good day because we get to remind everyone to take care of earth because there’s a lot of things that has happened to our earth and we want to make it feel comfortable like we are.” According to Principal Pam Colbert, the club was the idea of fourth-grader Rowan Robinson. “We had an interest meeting and had over 80 kids come to the interest meeting,” said Colbert, who is looking forward to seeing what kinds of continuous projects the students will come up with next.
