John L McKnight

was raised a traveling Ohioan, having lived in seven neighborhoods and small towns in the eighteen years before he left to attend Northwestern University, in Evanston, Illinois. There, he had the good fortune to be educated by a faculty dedicated to preparing students for effective citizenship. He graduated into the U.S. Navy, where he had three years of “postgraduate” education in Asia during the Korean War. Read John’s Bio

"A great community creates conditions where people can fall in love. It is a place where we can make a fuss about one another. A place where we can ask, ‘How did I ever live without you?"
