CHERRYVILLE—Two local students have been honored by the North Carolina Library Association.

Samuel and Stacy Kostiuk were chosen to be NCLA student ambassadors, according to proud mom Donna Kostiuk of Cherryville. Only 15 students from across the Tarheel State were picked for this honor, and to have two from the same family is quite remarkable, as Mrs. Kostiuk noted.

She explained that both children are patrons of the public libraries of Lincoln County. Stacy is an eighth grader at Chavis Middle School, and Samuel is a fifth grader at Beam Intermediate.

For her entry for a NCLA ambassadorship, Stacy composed a poem. For his entry, Samuel created a video that may be seen on You-Tube.

Mrs. Kostiuk added that her kids will represent North Carolina’s libraries, May 5-6, during National Library Legislative Day in Washington, D.C.

“This is some good news for our area!” she enthused.

Kostiuk continued that the students entered a statewide contest sponsored by the Legislative and Advocacy Committee of the NCLA by submitting essays, videos, Web pages or poems that proclaimed the value of libraries. Each winner and a parent will join library leaders from across the state to visit the members of Congress who represent North Carolina. Together, they will deliver the message of the importance of libraries in all of the state’s communities.
