Clearwater, Florida - If the 4th and 5th grade girls at Eisenhower Elementary School are any indication, we have a very bright future ahead of us!

The "Panda Pearls" meet each month to talk about certain topics that affect their lives. About 40 girls, headed by staff at the school, talk about everything from academics to self-confidence to table etiquette.

During the February meeting, the girls invited 10 News anchor Allison Kropff to talk about experiences leading up to her career, her job and setting personal and academic goals.

At the end of the meeting, after several wonderful questions and good discussion, The "Panda Pearls" made Allison an "Honorary Member."
