Monmouth Associates Luncheon
Thursday, February 21 @ 12:00 PM| $10
At the next Monmouth Associates program on Feb. 21, educational studies professors Tammy La Prad, Michelle Holschuh Simmons and Craig Vivian will shed light on challenges faced by rural districts and also explain the College’s new education initiatives.
The program will begin at noon in the Whiteman-McMillan Highlander Room of Stockdale Student Center.
Teaching at an institution located in a rural area, the College’s educators are keenly aware of some rural school districts’ struggle to recruit and retain teachers. In response to that need, the educational studies department has developed several initiatives, including its Rural Teacher Corps and TARTANS – Teachers Allied with Rural Towns and Neighborhood Schools.
The cost for a buffet lunch is $10 ($9 for Monmouth faculty and staff). Reservations can be made by calling 309-457-2231 by Feb. 19 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A free shuttle van transports passengers from two locations to every Associates luncheon. The van stops at the northeast quadrant of the Public Square at 11:45 a.m. and at the Faith United Presbyterian Church parking lot at around 11:50 a.m. It returns to both locations immediately following the program. Shuttle reservations can be made also by calling 309-457-2231.
Parking is available along North Ninth Street and in the parking lot near the Stockdale Center.
