Kelly Turney is artisan of the month
Artisan of the month and displayed in the Library will be the creativity and talent of a lovely young lady, 17 year old, Kelly Turney, from Whitebird Idaho. It is a familiar name if you attended the Idaho County Fair Royalty crowning this year, as she received “ Miss Congeniality.” She has also been a familiar face and name for the past several years in the 4-H program winning many awards. She has many young friends in this community.
Kelly is the daughter of Bob and Ellie Turney. She was born in Baja Mexico where her parents ran an Orphanage for five years. At the age of three her family moved back to Idaho and an area they all have come to love, near Hammer Creek on the Salmon River. 
This is Kelly’s profile:
I am 17 years old and entering my senior year as a home schooler. I really enjoy spending time with my dog Sunny and have done 7 years of 4-H with her, winning Grand Champion in Fitting and Showing 4 times and Obedience 3 times. 
I am President and Co-founder of Cornerstone Theater in Grangeville. We perform 1-2 plays a year and the proceeds from the performances go to a charity.
I am a purple belt in Goju Shorei Karate and enjoy doing that very much. 
I am also participating in the Congressional award and am almost halfway done. 
My hobbies include writing, drawing, reading and photography. I love doodling for my own pleasure, but I really enjoy taking pictures of my friends, my dog and so many more fun aspects of life.
I love to capture the beauty around me and freeze it in a single moment. 
A thespian for Christ ~Kelly
This is only a thumb nail sketch of Kelly’s talents. To view her photography is to see and appreciate beauty that surrounds us all, which she has captured on film. 
Her writings and “doodling” will also please you..
Please drop by the Library and enjoy the display by this ambitious and delightful young lady. You will not be disappointed.
