Editor’s note: Alonzo Clemons is an artist with a remarkable background who visited the students at Lyons Elementary School last month. As a toddler, Clemons suffered a head injury in an accident; this changed the way he thinks, learns and communicates. While much was lost due to the injury, something miraculous also occurred, for as Clemons sometimes puts it, “God gave a gift.” His sculptural specialty is the creation of animal figures, full of life and spirit, which are made with amazing speed, great accuracy in form and artistic beauty. Clemons works in wax and clay, using only his hands and fingernails to create his sculptures. Joy radiates from him as he sculpts.
Eitan P. – I was inspired by Alonzo Clemons to send more money to people that need help and also don’t judge a book by its cover. Also just because you need help doesn’t mean you aren’t good at everything. Because of what happened to Alonzo Clemons he got a gift. The gift was to be an amazing sculptor. So many amazing things can actually happen to you if you need help. So never judge a book by its cover.
