Last week, Mrs. Dawn Martin from the Walton County Fair Association presented seventh grader Analia Amador with a thoughtful gift for her artwork that will soon beautify our community fairgrounds for years to come. Mrs. Martin’s gift to Analia was a silver necklace with a crane charm, one with great significance for WMS’ very own origami artist.The Senbazuru is a Japanese tradition from legend that claimed that anyone who folded 1,000 paper cranes would be granted either a lifetime of happiness and good luck or one wish. Not long ago, the Walton County Fair Association wrote a grant and was awarded money from the Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County to create a Senbazuru art installation at the Walton County Fairgrounds.Rising to the challenge, Analia constructed 600 origami cranes in her spare time. The Senbazuru project, constructed from Analia’s paper cranes, will add much-needed color to the fairgrounds facility and will celebrate the wishes and dreams of future generations of Walton County residents.By using her talents to beautify the community, Analia exemplifies the Warrior spirit.We are one tribe, on one mission, using our talents to brighten Walton County.(Pictured L to R: Mrs. Dawn Martin, Walton County Fair Association; Analia Amador, WMS 7th Grader; Mrs. Brittany Schaefer, WMS Art Teacher)#1tribe1mission
