Picturing America

Thanks to the efforts of our middle and high school history teacher Dr. Whitney Kennon, MHA/FYOS has been selected to be a recipient of the Picturing America grant sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The Picturing America program seeks to educate students by providing large, high quality reproductions of American art for display in classrooms. These works of art help enhance the learning process by serving as visual stimulation, and creating a more enjoyable learning environment.

Here's a quote form Dr. Kennon: "I am very excited about this wonderful opportunity for our school. This collection has some of the most famous and memorable images from American history and will be useful not only in the classroom but will also complement the growing collection of wonderful art which graces our hallways."
