Interesting article about a student from Wick Sloane’s ’76 English class.

John Around Him is a student in the Bunker Hill Community College English class that was the subject of Wick Sloane’s last column. The class focuses on writing as a skill to manage your own destiny — a job letter, for example, or a memorandum to make something happen. One use of writing the class has discussed is the exercise of our First Amendment right “to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” As an assignment last week, John wrote the letter below to U.S. Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.). As a result, Kerry met with John and the class at Bunker Hill this morning, where the students presented him with their recommendations for overhauling the student aid system.

Kudos to Wick for being such an effective teacher.
