St. John Vianney Regional School, Allentown PA.

Eighth grade students of the Literature Program at St. John Vianney Regional School in Allentown, PA recently completed the curriculum for Voices of the Generations, and presented their final projects. The students truly appreciated the story, and compared it to other selections dealing with intolerance and the Holocaust.  As their teacher, Miss Diane Gabrielle elaborated, it was a memorable experience for them – through hard work, the students learned important lessons in history and tolerance.

We are so proud of their accomplishment and wish them a wonderful graduation on June 7, 2016.
