“The purpose of the Normandy Academy was not only to expand our knowledge of WWII history, but it was also to help us analyze the actions and decisions made while at the places where the critical battles took place. The Normandy Academy taught us to learn from the choices that were made and give us the ability to apply the ideas into our everyday lives.” - Kendall Dimson
