Mr. Larry Elliot, portraying Abraham Lincoln, brought history to life for students at North Magoffin on Wednesday May 2. His highly informational and educational program allowed students to experience history first hand from the year 1809 to 1865. The program encouraged students that they can also rise to the top of their dreams with character traits like Lincoln. Our students, through the words and principles of the 16th president of America, were encouraged to seek more, read more and laugh more. The guiding principle Lincoln led his life by was shared with students, Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and love thy neighbor as thyself; all the laws of the prophets hang on these two commandments. Matthew 22:37-38.
Special thanks to our NME FRYSC Coordinator Carrie Allen for scheduling and funding this program for our students.
