FHCI is Hosting a Presentation
Submitted by Aneta Costin on Tue, 01/12/2010 - 16:18
On Wednesday morning, FHCI is hosting a presentation for elementary school children from 11 area schools. The speaker will be Greg Mortenson, co-author of the New York Times #1 bestseller "Three Cups of Tea" and author of bestseller "Stones for Schools." Mr. Mortenson will be speaking to about 700 students in Grade 4 to 6 from 11 local elementary schools. The students in our Grade 12 Writer's Craft course will also be in the audience. I am hoping we will have space for our 10 students from Pakistan and Afghanistan, where Mr. Mortenson has been so instrumental in the cause of education and peace.
I am half way through "Three Cups of Tea" and am finding this true story totally absorbing. I aim to finish the book before Wednesday.
I encourage you to read about Mr. Mortenson and his remarkable contributions at http://www.threecupsoftea.com/greg-mortenson-bio-and-professional-photo/
