Shakespeare Class at Logansport
Juvenile Correctional Facility

Logansport, Ind. - This is the third year that students from LJCF have participated in a Shakespeare class conducted by a professor from Manchester University. Dr. Stacy Erickson-Pesetski, a Professor of English and Associate Dean of Academic Affairs, conducts class once a week over a four week period. LJCF’s English teachers, Mrs. Michelle Griffith and Mrs. Amanda Gentry, assist in facilitating this class. Normally Dr. Erickson-Pesetski travels to the facility, but this year she is teaching via Zoom.  This year’s theme is exploring heroes and villains.  They have read excerpts from Othello, King Lear, Titus Andronicus, and Richard III.  The students have really enjoyed this opportunity and look forward to it each week.

"We are thankful for our volunteers who are continuing to provide services to our youth", said Warden Eric Courtney.
