Ta Kwenya! St. Luke’s Middle School faculty and students recently had the opportunity to welcome a Maasai tribesman to the Hilltop. During his first visit to America, Salaash Morompi spent a morning with students eager to learn about his country and culture. Salaash spoke of tribal life and shared stories and striking photos from his work as a safari guide.

Meeting a Maasai
This exceptional opportunity, arranged by St. Luke’s Center for Leadership, allowed students to truly connect with someone from another land and walk of life. It was global education in living, breathing, vibrant colors.

Someone who will not be forgotten
After a lively presentation and discussion with the entire SLS Middle School, Salaash visited with sixth grade students in Meredith Ostrer’s World Cultures class. “We were blown away by Salaash’s story and perspective, and his visit left an indelible mark on the minds of many of our sixth grade students,” commented Meredith. “Never have I seen a group of middle school students so captivated by a single person. For me, it was one of my favorite days at SLS, ever.” One student asked,“What do you think of our country?” With a laugh Salaash replied, “Cold!” Then with a smile and arms spread wide he added, “But welcoming.”
