Kimi's Special Day

Posted: Updated:

How many hand written letters do you send in a year?

A young woman from Granville has made it her mission to scribble down thoughts,

and send them to influential people all around America.

Now they are responding. Bonnie Campo tells us one in particular made this a special day for Kimi Ofsthun.

Kimi Ofsthun (Granville Schools Employee) "My name is Kimi Ofsthun. I am an employee at TGU Granville School. I help with the Pre-School and Kindergarten class, and I also help in the kitchen. I would it if you would come to our school to talk to all our students. I think it would be very educational for the students if you would explain to them what you do."

Kimi arrives at the school around 10 A.M., but today the faculty took her to the hair salon because her hero was coming. It was her first time there, and she wanted to look her best for a picture perfect moment.

Kimi Ofsthun (Granville Schools Employee) "I'm ready to meet my special someone."

The excitement of K through 12th graders was draped in every classroom and hallway. It was Kimi's show time.

(John Hoeven, U.S. Senator) "Kimi, how are you dear. What a nice letter."

Kimi Ofsthun (Granville Schools Employee) "Thanks."

They toured the grounds, had a energetic pep-rally, and made senator Hoeven an honorary Titan. Then they sat down to eat a school lunch.

(John Hoeven, U.S. Senator) "Clearly Kimi is one of a kind. You can see it in the way the other kids, ya know, react to her. I can see it see it in the classroom where she is helping these Kindergartners. She is a special young lady.

Kimi Ofsthun (Granville Schools Employee) "It was all worth it to have him come here."

Kimi has plans to join the political arena. She says she will run for the Senate, or maybe even president. Her platform is to get involved, and be a good person.

In Granville, Bonnie Campo KX News.

Both the Senator and Kimi encourage you to write your elected officials. They say it's how the only real work gets done.
