NEVADA, MO.--- There were some celebrity spottings in Nevada this afternoon. The Nevada Middle School is hosting it's 28th Annual Wax Museum, and this years theme is "Y2K Does Wax." The students participating were born in the year 2000, so they had to research someone famous from the 20th century. Students spent months preparing by writing a report, getting into character and then presenting their report to the student body. Some of the students say becoming another person is fun for a day.
"When I put it in, it makes me feel smarter," said Makayla Haner, "Albert Einstein" Character.
They will have another performance on Wednesday for their school.
