On November 30, 2011 Green Valley Elks #2592 presented Drug Awareness Awards to three students at Sopori Elementary School in Amado, AZ. They were 3rd grade 1st place winner - Helina Sanchez, 4th grade 1st place winner - Garrett Esry and 5th grade 1st place winner - Julia Majalca. They all received a 1st Place Medal and Drug Awareness basketball. Julia's poster won 1st place at the Arizona State level in Tempe, AZ this past October and will be judged at the Elks National Level next. All three students really enjoyed receiving the medal and especially a new basketball.
Lt to Rt - Mrs. Kathy Walder and 1st place winner 5th grade , Julia Majalca
