Educators Who Are Selected Will Attend Washington, DC Conference in July

Washington, D.C.The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund is looking for educators to join its Teach Vietnam Teachers Network Class of 2007, said Jan C. Scruggs, founder and president of the organization.

As we enter the 25th anniversary year of The Wall being built, it is especially important for the Memorial Fund to promote awareness about those who served and sacrificed in Vietnam, said Scruggs. Today’s students were not even alive during the Vietnam War or when The Wall was built. We want to make sure that future generations do not forget about this important time in our nation’s history.

The Teach Vietnam Teachers Network is a nationwide network of educators at all grade levels who are dedicated to teaching students about the Vietnam War era and building awareness of the Memorial Fund’s educational initiatives. Members of the Network represent the Memorial Fund in their school districts and communities, helping to educate other teachers and neighbors about the war’s legacy and how it continues to impact our nation today.

The Memorial Fund provides educators chosen to join the Network with educational resources and hosts a national conference in Washington, D.C. to help members develop lesson plans. Workshops and seminars about the Vietnam War and The Wall will be led by veterans, fellow teachers and other guest experts. The conference also includes activities at The Wall. The anniversary year Teach Vietnam Teachers Network National Conference will be held July 18-22 at American University. The Memorial Fund will provide meals, accommodations and local transportation during the conference to all Network members…

     

The Teach Vietnam Teachers Network was established in 2002. Currently, over 200 educators are members of the Network.

Educators interested in joining the Teach Vietnam Teachers Network should contact the Memorial Fund at (202) 393-0090 or e-mail [email protected].  Applications can also be downloaded from the Memorial Fund’s Web site, www.vvmf.orgTo be considered for the Class of 2007, teachers must ensure that all application materials are received by the Memorial Fund by Friday, March 30, 2007. A limited number of teachers will be accepted for the Class of 2007.

Established in 1979, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund is the nonprofit organization authorized by Congress to build the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.  Today, through a series of outreach programs, it is dedicated to preserving the legacy of The Wall, promoting healing, educating about the impact of the Vietnam War and is building the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Center, an underground educational facility, near The Wall.
