For a fifth consecutive year, the Northeast Alabama Community College Learning Resources Center received a grant from the Alabama Humanities Foundation, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, to present a workshop. The theme of the workshop was “Andrew Jackson and His Legacy: A Workshop for K-12 Teachers.” Fifty-one local educators attended the event, which was held on Monday, March 4, 2019, in the Cecil B. Word Learning Resources Center on the NACC campus.
Presenters included Dr. Daniel Feller, professor of history at the University of Tennessee and editor of three presidential volumes of The Papers of Andrew Jackson, as well as Ms. Erin Adams, Director of Education and Interpretation at The Hermitage, Andrew Jackson’s home.
Dr. Julia Everett, head librarian/division director and co-writer of the grant noted, “We are grateful to the Alabama Humanities Foundation for partnering with NACC to conduct these workshops for our local K-12 teachers. We enjoy providing educational opportunities such as these workshops, which we see as part of NACC’s mission of community enrichment and personal growth.”
