Malorie Yarborough, a fifth grader at Windsong Intermediate, is the 2013-2014 Face of Friendswood. Community members looked up into her sweet face on a banner right by City Hall recently.
She is the face for the Friendswood ISD Education Foundation Adopt a Grant program. The program, in its fifth year, is underway and allows community members, businesses and friends of the Education Foundation to select grants for FISD teachers, purchase them, and then present the grants in a SurPrize Patrol in the spring. Fortunately for the teachers,once purchased, they can order their new materials that their campus budget cannot provide, and use them with their students.
The Face of Friendswood is a reminder of whom one impacts when he/she “adopts” agrant or two.
Malorie is the daughter of Lesley and Boyd Yarbrough. She has one brother, Max, in the eighth grade.
Her favorite subject is Math with Mrs. Ponia at Windsong. She also finds science interesting. Her class dissected a squid recently.
“It smelled weird but it was very interesting,” Malorie said.
When home on the weekends, Malorie loves to dance, have fun with friends and jump on the family’s trampoline. If she could leave immediately for a family vacation, it would be to Garner State Park or an “awesome” resort in Mexico where she swam with dolphins.
Her favorite movie is Elf and favorite television shows are the enormously popular Duck Dynasty and Dance Moms.
Her favorite apps are Bike Race and Parking Free.
After graduating from Friendswood High School, she hopes to major in Fashion Design at Texas A&M.
Malorie was preceded by two male students as the Face of Friendswood. John Ridout was the first and Matthew Kovacevich was second.
