Scranton School Board President & former educator/Principal, Barbara Dixon, spent time in our 5th grade class educating students of Nazi Germany & Adolf Hitler’s invasion of Tczinana, Poland. Mrs. Dixon’s mother, Helen Jachimczak-Zalinski, a West Scranton resident, had her family farm taken over by Nazi troops. The lesson, “Through her Father’s Eyes” discussed how Helen’s father would communicate with his children by using his eyes after her brother was injected with lethal poison by Hitler’s troops. This powerful story had 5th grade students at the edge of their seats & added a personal touch to World War 2 & Adolf Hitler, knowing a current resident of our city endured the misery of this piece of history. Thank you Mrs. Dixon & proud to say our Kennedy Cadets know Helen
