For S's end of year program the 5th grade put on a wax museum. Each student chose a state and a significant person from that state to research. S chose Hawaii and Hiram Fong. They did an awesome job! Here is his speech:
"Hi, my name is Hiram Fong. I was born October 15, 1906. I was the first Asian-Hawaiian U.S. Senator. I was the 7th of 11 children. I was a great politician. One obstacle I overcame was that I went to Harvard. Harvard cost a lot of money so it was hard on my family because we didn't have a lot of money. I died August 18, 2004."
