Students share their dreams on MLK Day

Jan 24, 2014 - By Alejandra Silva, Staff Writer

Arapahoe School fifth-grade students from the class of Tanis Young-Manning and Shiela Stark shared their own dreams Monday at the Fremont County School District 38 Board of Trustees meeting.

While studying the history and meaning of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the students developed their own dreams in speeches and described a community absent of bullying, crimes, smoking, alcohol and texting while driving.

Young-Manning said the students were driven by "intense thoughts" and used impressive vocabulary that helped them develop their feelings on the topics they presented.

"These are leaders," she told the board.
