Editor’s Note: Each month, the Sun-News is spotlighting a youth entrepreneur participating in the Cruces Kids Can – Jr. Vendor Program, a project meant to inspire and equip the youngest business people. Students’ participation entails showcasing and selling their goods from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays at the Farmers & Crafts Market of Las Cruces in the city’s downtown.

Arabella is one of our original founding Jr. Vendors and she has been an asset to our program over the years. She has served as a mentor to many of our participating youth, has volunteered countless hours and participated in several events.

You can continue to find Arabella selling at the Farmer’s Market throughout this summer, but then she is off to begin her journey in college. She will be greatly missed by our Kids Can family. However, there are many more adventures for her to chase and we know that she will do great things in life. Best of luck Arabella!
