ACELINK Connects Lugar to Schools

On Friday, March 10, five Fort Wayne, Indiana area high schools participated in the IPFW Virtual Town Hall Meeting with Senator Richard Lugar. The Senator--connected through the US Senate Studios-- joined students from Bishop Dwenger, Carroll, Elmhurst, Leo and Paul Harding to discuss his views on energy and the Nunn-Lugar legislation. Lisa Grier, IPFW's first Lugar Scholar, moderated the discussion from IPFW's Kettler Hall. Students from each location were able to interact with the Senator in the live two-way video meeting supported by ACELINK and a multipoint control bridge at East Allen County Schools.

The next Town Hall Meeting will be April 12, and our guest will be State Representative Jeff Espich. For information on signing up for this free program, contact Sandy Schaufelberger at 260-481-0747 or

All the sessions we have had the opportunity to participate in have been great! The interaction on various topics has given my classes a springboard to further discuss those issues covered by each participant. It has also developed confidence in my students to ask more questions and do research in the areas of their interest.

Thanks again for this experience.
