"Mr. Schonbrun had a profound impact on many of us,” said junior Amanda Lewis. “I thought that if he could survive 9/11 and use his experience to motivate us, then we could look inside ourselves to accomplish anything. By the end of his talk you could tell that the students, and even the faculty were fired up for this semester."
