Malachi Samuel as Mark Dean

Mark Dean is the Star of First Grader’s Living History Show

Malachi Samuel of Houston, Texas, delivered his first-grade living history presentation as Interim Dean and Computing Pioneer Mark Dean. From the looks of things, he went above and beyond the call. His mother, Katherine Samuel, wrote to Dean to share the story.

“My son Malachi is a 6-year-old in first grade and was tasked with creating a presentation (in first-person) for Black History Month. He chose his presentation to be about you, Dr. Mark Dean,” wrote Samuel.
