Symsonia Elementary Laniya Yarber helping others
Nurturing Hands - Laniya Yarber is a 3rd grader with a big heart.

GIVING HEART, NURTURING HANDS – Symsonia Elementary third grader Laniya Yarber expressed an interest in helping others a while back. So, she asked her mother how she could. Before long, she had raised $300 through an on-line auction to buy toys for children at the Lighthouse shelter in Mayfield.

Now, Laniya’s Nurturing Hands is a Facebook page and she asks others to help her fight cancer by raising funds “handled with a loving touch.”

 “We’re trying to get more people for Relay for Life and get other kids to help us,” she said. “And, for Easter I’m going to take arts and crafts to Lighthouse to make things with the kids there,” she added.

Her principal, Lisa Gamble, said everyone at Symsonia Elementary is proud of Laniya for her giving heart and hard work of putting it into action. Mayfield Mayor Teresa Cantrell will honor Laniya at the April city council meeting.
