Tiarra Pointer visits Hal Henderson Elementary School

Tiarra Pointer is a former student of Talladega City Schools. She is in the 10th grade. Tiarra attends Meade Senior High School in Fort Meade, Maryland. Tiarra enjoys getting all A's while accepting an occasional B. While in Talladega, Tiarra attended Houston Elementary School, Dixon Middle School, and Zora Ellis Jr. High School. Tiarra's class was the last group to attend Dixon Middle School.

Tiarra was one of Mrs. Laros's pre-algebra students during the 2003- 2004 school year at Zora Ellis Jr. High School. Tiarra says "Mrs. Laros is a big part of my life. She has had a tremendous impact on me and the things I choose in life. I am really thankful to have someone like her in my life. Mrs. Laros really listens to me and helps me to make wise decisions." Tiarra left Talladega and moved to Maryland to join her mother at the end of the 2003- 2004 school year.
While living in Maryland, Tiarra has been given the opportunity to meet various celebrities, people from many different countries, and to visit "The Mall" in Washington D.C. During her visit to "The Mall," Tiarra has the opportunity to see The White House, The Capitol, The Lincoln Memorial, The Washington Monument, etc. Tiarra has also been given the opportunity to participate in the Miss Teen Maryland Pageant and The National American Miss Pageant.

Tiarra called Mrs. Laros to ask for her address so she could send her a paper about the National Honor Roll Society, which she is now an active member. When asked by Mrs. Laros to speak to the sixth grade students of Hal Henderson Elementary School she accepted and felt honored. Tiarra spoke to the students about the importance of an education, the differences in educational opportunities in Maryland, the diversity of Maryland, the climate differences, and about setting long and short term goals. Tiarra also talked to the students about what the want to be when they grow up. Tiarra wants to become a criminal lawyer. She wants to attend Harvard University when she graduates from high school in 2009. Students, teachers, and lunchroom staff enjoyed Tiarra's message.

My name is Lasonda Pointer, and I'm Tiarra's mother. She has made me very proud to be her mother, she's a joy to have in my life. She strives for the best and only looks for the good in people, willing to help anyone in need. Moving was not only a change, but a challenge for her. Tiarra has had many great opportunities since moving to Maryland. Education is the key to being successful and Tiarra holds that key with pride. I would like to take this time to thank Mrs. Laros for the interest she has shown Tiarra.You have been a great inspiration to my child and I would like you to remain apart of her life. Thank you,
