2 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana June 7, 1991 I Vincennes students prove to be Good Samaritans Rivet principal. "That week, the period between the acci- dent and the death, was a key part of planting time and they needed to get the crops in." The Vincennes Catholic schools provided the buses and students, teachers and families traveled to the farm both days of the weekend to plant melons, tomatoes and peppers. "I was so pleased at the Christian action on their part," Politz said. "I look at whether a school is measur- ing up to Catholic education and then look at how the kids went out and did hot, hard labor. I likened it to the Good Samaritan. "We complimented our kids on their splendid act of charity. It was of great assis- tance to the Keller family, and it also showed a lot about them (the students}." Politz added that he is "filled with hope. It shows what can be done. There is a good spirit here. By MARY ANN HUGHES Message staff writer When Matt Keller's son, Matthew, was 'critically in- jured in a car-train accident on May 14, the community of Vincennes took a collective breath. Matt Keller is a science teacher at Rivet High School; he was Rivet's nominee for the 1991 Teacher of the Year award. His son, Matthew, was a Rivet graduate and a junior in secondary education at Purdue University; he was planning to follow in his fa- ther's footsteps as a science teacher. Matthew died from his in- juries May 18. The day he died, students from both Flaget Elementary School and Rivet High School went to the Keller farm north of Decker to volunteer their time and help with the plant- ing.
