My Mt. Rushmore

By. Emma Ziemba

The Real Mt. Rushmore

What faces would I put on my Mount Rushmore? Here’s what I already know: The faces of former presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln are on the memorial. It was designed by Gutzon Borglum. Mount Rushmore is located near Keystone, South Dakota. It was finished in 1941. If I could design my own Mount Rushmore, the faces of the following people who are important to me, would be carved in the granite: my Mom, my Dad, my best friend Bailey, and my step dad Kevin.

The First Person

The first person I would put on my Mt. Rushmore would be my mom, Alicia. She taught me how to pitch correctly. Now I can see the strike zone better. She also takes time to look at my grades. She is always proud of me.
