I traveled to Indianapolis yesterday to talk to some young alumni about a new idea for engaging our students as alumni – before they graduate. We think the concept just might work.
I missed talking to Jacob Pactor ’04 at lunch because Jacob’s a teacher at Speedway High School and getting away for lunch is…well…not an option. So I met Jacob at school.
I was lucky enough to catch the last 15 minutes of Jacob’s class. In many ways, I was immediately back at Nolan Catholic in Ft Worth, Texas watching a pretty good teacher named…Bill Placher ’70..teach a high school Religion Class. I’ve also seen Jacob’s uncle, Peter Pactor ’65 in the classroom there and he’s exceptional as well.
Jacob is good…no great. He has exactly the right DNA to get the best effort possible for young men and women. Peter – you should be so proud!
