Central High Student Receives Letter from President Barrack Obama

Posted by Community Relations on 8/24/2015

What do you get when you combine the innocence of youth with the greatest country in the world? You get a letter from the President. Not every Central High Student could squeeze into the gym to see President Barack Obama last January. His speech was shown in classrooms. Later, students in Tom Williams’ health class wrote letters to the White House. Kawkay Wa got a response. He wrote about his family history, leaving a war-torn Thailand when he was eight years old, and how difficult it was for him and his family to adapt to a new land. But he was thankful for how much more freedom there was in this country. This school year, he couldn’t wait to show a special letter he received.
