This just in from the Quileuete Nation:
“Twilight Saga:New Moon” actress Tinsel Korey who portrays Emily in the franchise gave the Quileute Tribal School students a special “Christmas Treat”.
Each student at the school received a personalized autographed photo from Tinsel on the last day of school before Christmas break. “Tinsel autographed the photos after her visit in the fall for each student and I wanted to them to receive them for a special occasion, states Jackie Jacobs. ‘I thought it would be a special treat for them to receive them for Christmas!”
“I was moved to tears when she requested the student list from Stephanie at the front desk of the Tribal School and when she proceeded to write each students name on her photo I actually did cry knowing how much that would to mean to the kids”, says Jacobs.
“The students love Tinsel and this latest gesture is yet another example of the beauty of her spirit”, states Chairwoman Carol Hatch. Principal Al Zantua said, “This is going to make them very happy, it truly will be a surprise for our kids.’ Thank you Tinsel, for remembering the kids at Quileute.”
In addition to her generosity for the Quileute students, Korey also led a success coat drive to benefit the Navajo community.”
