4th graders save a mountain!

Saving Black Mountain:
How an elementary school project helped stop mountain top removal
Thursday September 29th at 12:30 and 2:45
On Thursday, September 29, Judith Hensley, a science teacher at Wallins Elementary School in Harlan County, will be speaking on campus as part of a three day teach-in on mountain top removal. She will speak about how she worked with her 4th grade science class on environmental projects that eventually led to the students successfully testifying in Frankfort to save Black Mountain from mountain top removal. Her talk is being sponsored by the Department of Educational Policy Studies and Evaluation, the Department of History, the Appalachian Studies Program, and the COE Dean's office. She will be speaking at 12:30 in the COE auditorium and then at 2:45 in room 230 of the New Student Center.
