Hiram Fong

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."
