Congratulations to seventh grader Skye '23, who is featured as the youngest contributor in Far From Their Eyes: Ohio Migration Anthology, a book containing stories, poems and artwork by Ohio immigrants from around the world. 

Skye's submission was originally written in fifth grade for an assignment at Old Trail and details her grandparents' courageous escape from Vietnam before the fall of Saigon. The essay was selected as part of a nationwide search, which included submissions from individuals ranging in age from 9 to more than 60 years old, to find the most compelling stories.

Thank you for sharing your family's inspiring story with all of us, Skye, and congratulations on your success!
