James Yavorcik, Esq.
Jim Yavorcik Guest Speaker at Linden McKinley High School
Our Jim Yavorcik addresses a class last week at Linden McKinley High School in Columbus. Jim’s work as a journalist while at Ohio State helped to clear an innocent man of a murder north of campus in the 1970s. The students and their teacher Alana Veach were using the case as vehicle to learn about the justice system, writing, and presenting arguments in a persuasive fashion. Though the events of the case happened long ago, the crime occurred only a few miles away from their school and the victim of the murder was only 14, so the students were able to relate to it.
We applaud those teachers who use their creativity in the classroom to help foster understanding of our justice system.
