Liberty welcomes Japanese visitors
Alex Tachiyama, a Liberty High School senior, was lucky. He got to partake in a Thanksgiving dinner twice in the past six months.
He celebrated the gluttonous holiday in November with the rest of the nation, but he also munched on helpings of turkey and mashed potatoes again in March.
The March feast was for the benefit of his foreign visitor, Kazuyoshi Hirata, as 20 Liberty High School families hosted 24 students from Japan through a cultural exchange program.
