The assembly on November 18th featured Deng Jongkuch, a Sudanese Lost Boy who spent weeks walking to Ethiopia and then Kenya to live for many years as a refugee. His journey is very similar to the one made by Salva Dut, who is the main character in the 7th grade novel, "A Long Walk to Water".  Through our Cents for Sudan fund raiser, HMS collected $1,179 to present to Deng and his organization, ImpactAVillage.org. The 7th and 8th grade classes that raised the most were selected to present the check to Deng.  Mrs. Bogner's  3rd period 7th grade class and Mrs. Kujawa's 2nd period 8th grade class were the winners.
