Hey folks,
Sports Illustrated is doing a cool story on high school underdogs and one of my students is featured. Noor is an incredible kid that I have had the honor of teaching and knowing for 3 years. I can not fit enough superlatives to rightfully describe him. If you could click on the BIG RED "VOTE" button right below or at the top of this page after viewing his story and vote for Noor by clicking on Adams City, it would be great. Winners and their entire team get a trip to New York and a $25K grant. I would especially love if all you active social networkers out there would throw it up on your network of choice. Muchas gracias.

Great stuff. I'll look at all the kids, and cast a vote! Keep up the good work. These kids are how we'll change our world.

Done.

The room it smelled heavy of drinkin',  

and the sad silent song, made the hour twice as long,

as I waited for that sun to go sinkin'.
