Since Memorial Day is this month, we decided to do a display with the total number (251) soldiers from Illinois that have been killed in the current conflicts; since 9/11. We decided to group them by county. Shari and Jon put together these amazing tombstones for each county with the total number killed.

There certainly was more interest in the table because of that. The tombstones were very eye-catching and a number of people stopped by. It seemed to me that the teachers and staff were much more serious about what the tombstones represented than the students.

Two Hispanic boys took a flyer on the top 10 jobs. We talked about how several in the top 10 involve new green technology like solar panel installer, wind turbine installer, etc.

One women thanked us for being there.
