Fifth-grader Dominic Tigue began working on the Huddleston app last spring. When the app was ready, he wrote a letter to principal Heidi Pfannenstiel requesting to meet with her.

“He shared with me that he had created a Huddleston app with the support of his father, coding and all. This young entrepreneur set our vision for the app,” says Pfannenstiel. Read More»
