Matthew Jellick (’93) is currently teaching English in Korea. Matthew is looking forward to his third year there, in a country which while rooted in rich tradition, continues to expand its horizons towards a better and brighter future. Recently passing through the Land of the Morning Calm was Jack Gaube (’93), who was on a tour of Asia for Nike Corporation to expand their global market. Both Matthew and Jack were able to meet up for an amazing weekend in Seoul, reminiscing about their times past, including experiences at SSJ, back when we were the Rebels! Although Matthew and Jack currently find themselves living far from SSJ, they are each grateful for the time spent there, where they were taught the value of things like long division, and the importance of lifelong friends!
