Mrs. Mortenson Visits Goldenview!

On April 16th, Jerene Mortenson, mother of Greg Mortenson, the author of Three Cups of Tea, visited Goldenview and gave an inspiring talk to all the students and staff.  Mrs. Mortenson spoke of her son's experiences, and the importance of building schools in Afghanistan and Pakistan to the peace process.  She especially stressed the importance of educating girls.

On her way to the auditorium Mrs. Mortenson stopped by the library and donated several copies of all three of her son's books, including 8 copies of the young adult edition of Three Cups of Tea, which will be a middle school battle of the book next year.  Thank you Mrs. Mortenson--both for the books and the inspiring talk!
