Ferrin attends NRA summit

Ahwatukee Foothills resident Alyssa Ferrin was one of 45 students from across the nation accepted into the National Rifle Association’s Youth Education Summit (NRA’s YES). The week-long program took place in July in Washington, D.C.

The students toured the Capitol, the Supreme Court, the Pentagon, National Archives, monuments and memorials, Arlington Cemetery and Quantico Marine Base. They spent a lot of time at the NRA headquarters. They also gave speeches and participated in debates on current political topics.

Ferrin was one of seven students awarded scholarship money at the end of the week. She received a $1,500 scholarship for her outstanding performance and is eligible to apply for the NRA annual $20,000 Grand Scholarship.

Since her experience with the Youth Education Summit, Ferrin has become a volunteer for the NRA Eddie Eagle Gunsafe Program, a gun accident prevention program designed for children in pre-K through third grade. She presents the program to Cub Scout groups.

The NRA encourages citizens nationwide to participate in heightening gun safety awareness within their local communities. Schools, law enforcement agencies, civic groups and others interested in more information about the Eddie Eagle GunSafe Program are invited to call (800) 231-0752 or visit www.nrahq.org/safety/eddie. To schedule a presentation for your group, e-mail Ferrin at aferrin93@hotmail.com.

 

Nguyen, Cumpston selected to perform in Friendship Concert

Ahwatukee Foothills residents Dan Nguyen, 6, and Brennan Cumpston, 9, have been selected to perform in the Suzuki Piano Basics Friendship Concert starting at 4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 7, at Westwood High School, 945 W. 8th St., Mesa. The concert is being presented by the Arizona Suzuki Association Phoenix Piano Group and will feature 22 students from across the United States. Nguyen and Cumpson are students of local Suzuki teacher Karen Nalder.

This concert is being given in conjunction with a piano workshop being taught by teachers from the internationally-acclaimed Talent Education Research Institute in Matsumoto, Japan, which was established by Shinichi Suzuki, the founder of the famous Suzuki Method. Teachers attending are from across the United States and Canada.

The Suzuki Method approaches learning to play music as one learns language; hear it, say it (play it), then read it. Children as young as 3 listen to high-quality music that they learn to play and later learn to read. By watching other children perform, young children realize that any child can learn to play the piano well. Using the Suzuki Method, parents and teachers create a learning environment where all children can be successful.

This concert is being given as a gift to the community with no cost to attend. Parents are encouraged to bring their piano students and “potential” piano students for an afternoon of fun and inspiration. All teachers and interested community members are welcome.

For more information on the concert, workshop or the Suzuki Method, e-mail Karen Nalder at karennalder@gmail.com or Gloria Elliott at gelliott50@aol.com.
