Lynnville-Sully 8th grade students had the opportunity to skype with Allison Crowther, mother of Welles Crowther, to learn about leadership and Welles' heroism on 9/11.  The skype session was part of a much larger unit of study that has involved collaborating with a number of individuals who had first-hand experience of the events of 9/11 or who lost loved ones that day.  To prepare for the interviews, the students worked in small groups to develop questions that would allow them to gain a better understanding of what occurred on 9/11, the 9/11 Tribute Center, and examples of ways individuals demonstrated leadership that day and in the months that followed.
