PEORIA COOPERATIVE ACADEMY VISIT
We are pleased that the Peoria Cooperative Academy visited us earlier this month. This is another example (after Astoria HS - 126 miles) of the growing influence and interest in our museum from schools outside Pontiac and Livingston County. Thanks to Ellen Lorentz and the other teachers for giving their students this opportunity. We were proud to assemble several of our World War II veterans to speak with the students. Museum President Jack Murphy welcomed them and then the students participated in individual small group interviews with each veteran of the Atlantic and Pacific theaters of war. Truly first-hand history from the men who made it!
