A multimedia tribute to Coach Paterno & The Grand Experiment
Men of different races, professions, ages, and religions gathered to share their stories of “The Grand Experiment” at Penn State. The TJWK Crew traveled to 5 cities and interviewed nearly 70 men in 12 days. One result was the film, “The Joe We Know”. In addition, two volunteer professionals and a volunteer team of Penn State students reviewed and edited each 40 minute interview to produce shorter videos – Lions’ Tales. In contrast to conventional belief web users will not watch a video any longer than two minutes, we believe it takes time to absorb wisdom. The age old ritual of listening to a story on the porch is available through Lions’ Tales.
Grab a cup of your favorite drink, plug in your ear buds, and watch these vignettes. You will see the attributes of respect, loyalty, justice, hope, honesty, and courage wrapped in the discipline and love of “The Grand Experiment”. Great coaches over a six decade period molded several thousand young men and equipped them to use their gifts to change the world for the better.
We hope you enjoy listening to these men as much as we did. Sip gently and listen carefully!
