Hi everyone, my name is Alexander Bednar from the Alpha class. My summer went well I play cello and I enjoy reading books and between that and my move from Faribault to St. Paul I have been pretty busy this summer. I think you will all enjoy the honors class quite alot. The thing I have always loved about the honors class is it challenges you to examine the world you live in and makes clearer sense of world issues, but most importantly it helps fine tune your abillity to interpret everything around you, making you a great deal more perceptive when it comes to issues of marginalization. It should be fun working with you all and I look forward to seeing you in the coming weeks.
