    Nintey-Year-Old Veteran John Gaultier Keeps it Real

     

       John Gualtier from Vinton, Iowa, spoke about his role as medic and experience as a liberator of the camp, Gunskirken Lager, the one that General Eisenhower visited. He spoke about the unspeakable–as seen from his 18-year-old perspective both as a medic and as a liberator.  He detailed the toll his participation took on his life after the war ended.  He asked the students to do something for him as he closed…”Get your education.  Listen to your teachers.  Go home and tell your parents you love them.”  [For all those who never had a chance to do so.] His most prestigious award received to date is the Jefferson Award, a national award created by Jacqueline Kennedy for volunteerism. Last night at the Yom Hashoah (Night of Remembrance) John received a local award for his service as a WWII veteran. Thanks to Ms. Toppler for bringing him to West.

    West Students Participate in United Way Education Day of Caring

     

      iJAG and Mr. Massey’s Computer Science classes participated in the United Way Education Day of Caring. The students met one-on-one with local business professionals in an Employability Skills Workshop. Each student met with one professional to discuss his/her resume, met with another professional to perform a mock interview, and got to speak with them about what it takes to get and keep a career. Each student received feedback they could take with them into a real world job application and interview. Two students were offered employment opportunities at a local business. Kameron Houston was interviewed for the John Deere World Leaders meeting and on May 18th will be speaking in front of 200 John Deere World Leaders about his experiences with iJAG and the Day of Caring. Proud Falcons.  Latebreaking news:  Marcus Seay was interviewed by the QCTimes.  The article appears below.  Picture2
