PEMBROKE SCHOOL DISTRICT SETTING UP SPEAKERS BUREAU

Administrators of Pembroke Central School are turning to area residents to share their knowledge and experience with students. High School Principal Robert D'Angelo wants to form a speakers' bureau consisting of area residents who from time to time would address students.

Local residents can enhance many classroom subjects, D'Angelo said. For example: "A social studies class could learn a lot about the Vietnam conflict from lectures and traditional classroom tools, but a classroom visit from a Vietnam veteran speaking on his own impressions could make that period of American history come to life."

D'Angelo invited residents with special knowledge about a broad range of topics to describe them in letters to the Speakers Bureau, Pembroke Central School, Corfu 14036. The list will be compiled before spring and circulated to teachers.
