One of our students, Ken Neilsen, was kind enough to pass on some info about a project he was working on in one of his classes. His assignment was to interview a political figure that made an impact on his life in some way. He chose to interview our Mayor of Rochester, Thomas "TJ" Jean, as Ken is a resident of Rochester and was interested in learning more about the direction of the city. Ken returned with several pages of notes and had a very positive experience. He was surprised by how easy it was for him to secure a meeting with the Mayor and how approachable Mayor Jean was in participating in the process. What a great way to make the learning in your classes relevant to your life!
