“We ar ehosting a young man, his name is Noah, and he’s from Denmark,” said Cross. “He’s an aviation enthusiast, so I’ve got a lot of things planned for him this year to really get things going into Biloxi School District with him.”

“To be an America, this means like freedom for me,” said Noah. “Of course, this is the first time I’m outside of Denmark for a period of time.”
