William Belsey brought the global village home to Leo Ussak Elementary School in Rankin Inlet, Northwest Territories. After taking over the school's computer program, he challenged his students to make their school the first in the area to have Internet access and to be the first school in Canada's Arctic to have a World Wide Website. Although the struggle to provide ongoing funding to support this initiative continues, the students met the challenge. The website has received international recognition as well as several awards.
