Hero and Project Description: 

Vincent’s innovative teaching idea, “Interviewing Military Veterans,” focuses on generating increased civic engagement through interviewing a veteran and preserving his or her story in a biography format. Students involved in the project will engage with their community through a new medium and learn about the important sacrifices made by the men and women who have served to protect our country as well as others. Students will conduct recorded veteran oral history interviews and publish the stories in an annual book with the support of the Voya grant. Most notably, the students will archive these veteran stories at the Library of Congress and attend a book signing ceremony where they will listen to stories of former military service members.
