This is for an in-class activity -- a ~150-word short bio inspired by how people introduce themselves on social networking sites, as well as this obit (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/02/world/02osama-bin-laden-obituary.html) on the deceased Osama bin Laden.
Adam Michael Schenck is a son of a country lawyer from Southwest Iowa whose budding career in college English teaching brought him from Arizona to Minnesota, and whose work helped many students learn how to write better. Although he was initially educated in a Catholic parochial school, his second major knee injury, an ACL tear, at age fifteen caused him to lose his faith, but may have aided in his interest in intellectual pursuits. Schenck’s primary passions in life have been sports, health, music, and reading. An English major at Buena Vista University in Northwest Iowa, he later earned a Masters degree in English literature at the University of Arizona in Tucson, where he moved to with his college sweetheart Jessica Knutson, a political organizer. After a somewhat tumultuous five-year marriage, they divorced amicably in 2010. For the future, he hopes to pay off his creditors, pursue more higher education, and contribute to American culture in his teaching and creative work.
