Kids Hall of Fame

I received a letter via email this morning from Susan Mule, whose daughter Elizabeth raises tarantulas for medical research. Susan wrote:

Hi, I was once asked, after my homeschooled daughter’s appearance on Oprah Winfrey, to let your magazine know about her future accomplishments (Yahoo or Google search “Elizabeth Mule tarantulas”) This past weekend Elizabeth was inducted into The Kids Hall of Fame for her work as an author/spokesperson for the tarantula hobby and for promoting the use of tarantula venom in medical research. It was an amazing experience for us because we didn’t think we were going to make it since we are from New Orleans and just lost our house in Hurricane Katrina. But Southwest Airlines arranged for the trip after seeing a story about Elizabeth. I wasn’t planning to write to you about this, but then I realized that Elizabeth was not the only homeschooled child being inducted. So, it occurred to me that your magazine might be interested in several of these awesome children and young people.

For Elizabeth specifically, her latest piece was for Scholastic News.

For information about the other amazing kids please go to Kids Hall of Fame and contact Victoria Nesnick.
