KENNESAW — Nearly 50 famous athletes, musicians, Hollywood icons, inventors and other historical figures, or facsimiles of them, graced the halls of North Cobb Christian School on Friday.

Fourth-graders at the school dressed up as a number of people, including Shirley Temple, Cleopatra, Jackie Robinson, Mozart and Booker T. Washington, for their annual wax museum project.

“The event culminates a biography study in which the students read books about famous people and summarize their lives in a recitation given in character at the wax museum,” said Krys West, NCCS advancement associate.

Students dressed and told the stories of who they were depicting to family, friends, classmates and other NCCS community visitors.

“It was just wonderful. You could tell how hard the kids worked,” West said.
