Mrs. Harper's 3rd grade class at Ramstein Intermediate School presented "A Living Wax Museum - Honoring America's Heroes."  Students selected a hero, researched and wrote reports and dressed in costume.  Museum visitors pushed a "button" and the wax figures came to life answering questions in character.  

Barack Obama: When asked what accomplishment gave Barack Obama the greatest sense of pride? President Obama (Caden Green) answered: "The accomplishment that gives me the greatest sense of pride is obviously being the first, listen to me, the first African-American president!"

Benjamin Franklin: When asked what do you hope people will remember about you, Mr. Franklin? (Patrick Espinosa) answered: "What I hope people remember about me is how I made all those inventions to help people around the world such as the glass harmonica, bifocals, the Franklin stove and the lightening rod."

Neil Armstrong: Neil Armstrong (Elijah Garcia) advised children in school today "to never give up and have courage."

Paul Revere: Paul Revere (Lucas Garcia) said the greatest challenge he faced was fighting in the Revolutionary War.  "How I dealt with it? Keep fighting!"
