Ms. Mojah Hamner, an art teacher at Fort Gibson High School, in Fort Gibson, Oklahoma, was awarded an AAEF grant to purchase supplies to supplement a newly acquired kiln for her ceramics classes. This equipment, known as "furniture," will complete a previously donated kiln, allowing it to be in working order for the entire student body.
"At Fort Gibson over the course of a week I see 764 students," said Ms. Hamner. "This year our school was faced with budget cuts and I couldn't purchase the necessary equipment. With the necessary kiln furniture, the students now have the opportunity to make ceramic art throughout the year."
AAE would like to congratulate Ms. Hamner on her commitment to her students. A fully functioning kiln will certainly get more students interested and involved in the arts at her high school. Great job!
AAE would like to congratulate Ms. Bello on her commitment to her students. Attending these counseling-focused conferences are sure to reinvigorate her strategies used to work with kids. Fantastic job!
