Coming to the Island to Share about an Island

Dan Seim, a principal here at Trinity 18 years ago, was on island to see family,  While here he offered to shar about his mission trip to St. Lawrence off the coast of Alaska.  The 6th grade students got to see and hear about the island of St. Lawrence which is about three times the size of Oahu but only has a population of 2,000.  With only one truck on the island, no trees and no Walmart (which amazed the students) it was obvious how many differences there were compared to Oahu.  The largest employer on island is the school which also serves as the community center.
