Reverend Jones

IMG_0741Lakeview seventh grade students had the opportunity to hear an outstanding guest speaker on March 25th.  Rev. David Bebb Jones is a retired Presbyterian Minister who served for thirty years as the pastor of the Presbyterian  Church of Western Springs, where he is now Pastor Emeritus.  He now serves as a Pastor Associate at Knox Presbyterian Church in Naperville.

Reverend Jones participated In the Selma March on April 21, 1965. At that time he was serving as Pastor of the Presbyterian Church in Marquette Heights, IL, near Pekin and Peoria. During his presentation to the students, he shared stories as well as actual artifacts that were used in the Selma March.  We were very fortunate to have a “first-hand” recollection of what it was like in the country during those times available to our students.  He was able to create many connections to student projects from the history fair held in early March as well as ties to the current curricular themes of Empathy and Respect that are being presented through our seventh grade curriculum.

Lakeview Staff Mrs. Gina Horeni and Mrs. Kristy Mixon first heard Reverend Jones speak at Oak Trace Retirement Community with some of our students that participate in the Lakeview Memory Makers Club.  The Memory Makers Club makes regular visits to Oak Trace and spend time visiting with the residents, many that are affected by Dementia.
