Copperas Cove, Texas (KWTX) -The Copperas Cove Independent School District has students on who’s first language spoke at home is not English.

Students who go to Copperas Cove ISD have an English Learner’s (EL) program for students where a language other than English is spoken in the home or who speak a language other than English.

Incoming kindergarteners and first graders have an opportunity to go to the ESL Summer Camp at Fairview/Miss Jewell Elementary.

Those students in the summer camp got a chance to meet with Miniature Miss Five Hills Haelyn Hendricks, who wants to spread the message of cultural diversity around her community.

Hendricks, who raised over $900 from hosting a lemonade stand on national lemonade day weekend, wanted to find a way to help other kids understand diversity.

“Cultural diversity is something that should take the rest of our life. So that’s why we wanted to her to know that this is important and that other students like her on the students behind us to know that it’s OK. And even though we’re different, we’re also the same,” said Hannah Hendriks, Mother of Miniature Miss Five Hills.

The Miss Five Hills Scholarship Pageant is for Girls and women of all ages and boys up to age eight. The pageant gives them a chance to learn more about their community while showing diversity and inclusion.
