Landmark Moments Fellowship at Rio Grande University

This year’s focus has been on the Native Americans and history of the American Southwest. Educators must complete work related to the program, including a classroom observation and online work. Mr. Jenkins will be participating in this year’s Field Study Program in Texas and New Mexico.

As the old cliché goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” Some of the most impactful art is a reflection of life. The program has hosted a multitude of presenters over the years that are professors and professionals. Mr. Jenkins and Mr. Parsons feel fortunate to be developed by master artists to paint and sculpt life and history as art for our students. Both teachers have submitted two photographs from last year’s Field Study in New Orleans and Hawaii as an example of the wonderful opportunities this program grants to educators.

 

My favorite site to visit in New Orleans was the WWII Museum. One of the most fun and enriching experiences was the performance of the “Victory Belles”. This trio of performers gave historic background to the WWII era, while performing popular time period songs in time period clothing.

      This is my favorite picture from the entire trip. Pearl Harbor is a humbling place to experience. The tragic nature of the events of December 7th gives way to the victorious endings on the USS Missouri. I feel this picture represents this feeling of leaving the USS Arizona Memorial and looking back with a beautiful shot of the American Flag in the foreground.
