Hmong Students Formally Thank Hawthorne Neighborhood For Bilingual Teacher...

During Thursday's meeting of the Hawthorne Neighborhood Council board, a group of Hmong student soccer players and their mentor, Jay Clark, presented a video to the board. The video formally thanked Hawthorne for supporting efforts to bring a bilingual Hmong teacher into the North Minneapolis School system. Apparently, the Jordan Neighborhood was also involved in the effort, which might be described as a "joint" effort.

The youth played a heart-warming video for the board about how much it meant to have a bilingual teacher. I hear the video will eventually make its way to a U of M website. Once I get word of that, I hope to link it here.
