Recent Report Card

Aom just completed 8th grade and we couldn’t be happier with his efforts. He earned a 3.27 overall GPA and got 6 A’s! He excelled in English, Math, Art, Sports, and Health.  He is another star at Warm Heart.  He was on the team with Nuey Sutinan and Gai for first place in the science competition and has learned to play the guitar this year.

Age: 14

Grade: 9

Aom is thirteen going on thirty. He’s big, bookish and bespectacled.

Somehow, he has avoided strenuous labor his whole life only to come to Warm Heart where his desire is to be helpful has led him into Dr. Shafer’s grasp.

Every Saturday and Sunday, poor Aom is out in the sun with Shafer digging, setting stones or helping with some other arduous task. It’s a learning experience.

In fact, almost everything at Warm Heart is a learning experience for Aom.

He is Lanna Thai, just one of three among the Akha Karen, Lahu and Lisu hill tribe kids.

Here he has gone suddenly from a village with no school to school at school and school at home!

We are not worried about Aom. This young man is destined for great things – and a nicer kid can’t be found.
