Power of Travel: Schoen Travelship
In 2006, after two years of anonymously funding a program, the Schoen family publicly stated: “Three years ago we decided to pilot a summer foreign travel program for tenured Weston teachers that we hoped would help to enhance the perspectives and enrich the experiences of teachers and students in the Weston School community. It is our great pleasure and privilege to now fund this program on a long-term basis. We look forward to sharing your journeys of exploration and to seeing their impact on our community for many years to come.”
After generously funding nine travelships, the family decided to end the program. In celebration of the amazing power of this initiative, there are two upcoming programs:
1) March 1 opening of exhibition of paintings at Florentine Frames (Weston Center) completed by Dawn Nelson, MS art teacher and recipient of the last Schoen Travelship and
2) A March 4th presentation by Dawn Nelson and her fellow travelers about their trip to Turkey, Greece and Germany (Community Room of Town Library).
We are hoping that another donor will come forward within the community to continue this grant. Its value cannot be overstated as a transformational experience that has greatly enriched our classrooms and integrated a global perspective into the curriculum. After almost a decade, the travelship has also become part of the framework of our schools. If you have questions, please contact me.
