INDIAN HEAD CENTS PROVIDE LIFE LESSON

The Daily Tribune of Royal Oak of Detroit published an article on March 7
about a local teacher and his gift of old coins to his students:

"Each spring, Kimball High School graphic arts teacher Mike Stinnett gives
graduating seniors in his classes some uncommon cents and a wise lesson on
life's enduring values.
Stinnett four years ago began handing out Indian Head pennies minted between
1859 and 1908 along with a written last lesson on value and worth."

He urges graduating students to be aware of those things that have lasting
value and worth. He lists a half dozen important starting points such as
family, education, respect for others and the environment, friendship and a
willingness to listen.

"What we sometimes value many times has no worth," Stinnett writes in the
pamphlet, "and what you believe has worth may have no value. Choose each
carefully."

"Seeing high school students wrapped up in materialism, video games, clothes
and cars, the Indian Head penny lesson is cautionary, Orth said.

"It's a way of saying don't get caught up in all that," she said."
