WESTON — Tribal students at The Sagemont School’s Lower School researched, created and presented projects about famous people who have been inspirations to them in some way. As part of the Wax Museum program in April, the students not only did major research on their specific persons of choice but they also had to dress for the part. Represented were a Native American gold medal Olympian and Pro Football Hall of Famer (Jim Thorpe), a Native American war hero (Sitting Bull), an astronaut (Valentina Tereshkov), a First Lady (Michelle Obama), a civil rights leader (Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.) and a saint (Mother Teresa).
