Last week 16 students from Harlan Independent participated in the Washington Institute for Leading and Learning (WILL), sponsored by Kentucky Educational Development Corporation (KEDC) and the National Council for History Education (NCHE). Led by Harlan High School Social Studies teacher, Megan Freyer, students particpated in Zoom meetings with institutions and individuals from Washington D.C. pertaining to our nation's history: virtual tours of Mt. Vernon and Monticello, introductions to Ford's Theater and the National Archives and discussions with Kentucky Lt. Governor Jacqueline Coleman and author/historian Erica Armstrong Dunbar. The purpose of the program was to provide an opportunity to enhance student knowledge of our nation’s past so that they have the background to emerge as young leaders in our democracy. #familyofdragons #youngleaders
Sunshine School Summer Explorers had a special visit from Zoo Knoxville last week. Students learned about how animals' teeth show us what they eat, and students were able to see and explore some special friends from the zoo.
We are proud to partner with The Cawood Ledford Boys and Girls Club to positively impact the lives of students and families of Harlan County. #FamilyofDragons
