Mr. Spooner's and Mrs. Barnes' language arts classes at Harding Middle School were honored to welcome Lakewood High grad and Olympic marathoner Makorobondo "Dee" Salukombo on Friday. Dee spoke to the group about his experiences; both living in the Congo and his transition to living in the United States. The inspirational visit will surely impact these Harding students for a lifetime! Thanks go out to Mr. Wheeler for helping us make contact with Dee! Finally, please consider supporting Dee's foundation, Project Kirotshe, to help bring educational opportunities to his native Congo.
