SJMA Alumni and Sophomores Participate in Panel Discussion
After reading A Separate Peace by John Knowles, Sophomores participated in a panel discussion to learn about St. Joseph’s Military Academy and its similarities to the school in the novel. Alums, Guy ’68 Windholz, Tom ’65 Drees and Bob ’68 Wolf, answered questions written by sophomores that told of their experiences as students at SJMA.
The project was two-fold: to make a comparison between the school and experiences in the novel A Separate Peace to SJMA and to establish a connection with the rich history of our school through an association with alumni. Additionally, students learned how to coordinate and participate in a panel discussion.
