Our Leschi Stars

Once a year we honor Leschi Stars, those folks or groups who have made a big difference in Leschi. This year we honored four individuals and one group at our June meeting. (Star photos courtesy John Barber.)

First (and long overdue), we accepted the nomination of Henrietta Price, who has been the crossing guard at Leschi Elementary School for over 2 decades. She not only walks the kids safely across busy streets, she takes a personal interest in the students, giving them the encouragement that we all need to do better. Also known as The Hat Lady, Mrs. Price is known for her artistic millinery creations. Her actual career has been as a nurse, but she has also been a volunteer at important places in her community. She currently volunteers at the Central Area Senior Center where grown-ups can benefit from her bright smile!
