News from Support Our Schools organization: “Class of 1986 alumni Jeff Dinse a teacher at North Park Junior High School in Lockport, posted a video on YouTube that has gone viral, with more than 62,000 views in one week: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRfQ-L_HOXs. The video features the song “All Kinds of Kinds” by country star Miranda Lambert, who tweeted about it, saying “Just saw this video North Park Junior High made with ‘All Kinds of Kinds.’ They have the right idea.” In a Lockport Union-Sun & Journal interview last week, Dinse said he thought making a video like this would be appropriate since “schools are made up of all different kinds of kids, all different kinds of teachers.” Congratulations and thank you to Jeff for taking on such an inspirational project.
