From Carol Price, owner of BookPeople of Moscow in Moscow, ID:
My three favorite teenage employees graduated from Moscow High School last weekend: Reed Spurling (my son), Sidney Williams, and Emma Seckington. They’ll all be going off to college in August: Reed to University of Arizona for aerospace engineering, Sidney to Georgia Tech for math, and Emma to Oberlin for peace and justice studies.
Reed has been working at the store since the age of 14 and has had his own Harry Potter closet above the stairs since I bought the store when he was 11. Emma joined the staff at age 15 after volunteering as a member of our teen advisory board. She has donned more life-size book character costumes than anybody else on our staff and you know how hard that is! Sidney joined us last year to help us keep up with donated used books. I will miss them all terribly!!
