Forman Alumna Brings Winterim Students to American Embassy at Vatican
Posted 03/07/2017 03:58PM

Once a Lion, always a Lion. That’s a phrase we say a lot here at Forman School, and it’s just as true on campus as it is across the globe.

As chance would have it, a group of Forman students headed to Rome and Pompeii for an “Ancient Wonders” educational Winterim trip. And it turned out that among the relics of Italy, it was the modern wonder of social media that brought one of the most meaningful experiences to the adventure.

An alumna, Jennie Alexandre Bono ’85, saw a photo on the Forman Facebook page in Rome and graciously reached out, offering to connect with the group. She and her family are posted in Rome, where her husband, Louis, is the Charge d'Affairs of the U.S. Embassy to the Holy See. They moved to Rome last July and will be there three years. “We can introduce them to diplomacy and government overseas,” she said. And the rest is history.

The Forman students were able to meet up with the Bonos and tour the embassy in person. “It was cool and my pleasure to have them over,” she said. “I was so happy it worked out with their schedules and ours!”

We send our sincerest thanks to Jennie and Louis Bono for their hospitality and for providing our students the opportunity of a lifetime.
