In 1977, Led Zepplin, at the height of their powers, stopped in Seattle on a world tour and played the Kingdome. The Seattle Seahawks was just two years old. Fans going to the newly built Kingdome to watch them play would see Steve Largent, Dave Brown and Jim Zorn. Seattle Slew won the triple crown, Dixie Lee Ray was governor, and the Eastside was little more than farmland. It would be many years before Microsoft would reshape development here - in 1977 the fledging company still had its office in Albuquerque.

Skyline High School senior Jason Lu has been studying the traffic management systems in America and overseas.

“We always knew we couldn’t stay rural because we were too close to Seattle. But it’s so interesting to see how things have developed. I just can’t believe it.”
For many of us, the inspiration and energy to help people in need is something that comes later in life. Often it isn't until we have seen a bit of the world, and witnessed first hand the suffering and trials of others, that we are moved to act.
