IHS teacher receives National Endowment for the Humanities grant

(April 15, 2019)

Isabella High School teacher Rachel Hartsell has been selected as one of only 16 teachers in the country to receive a National Endowment for the Humanities grant to attend a Holocaust education seminar this summer.

“Teaching the Holocaust through Visual Culture” is a Summer Scholar’s Program at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine, and will include 10 days “of very intensive seminar training,” Hartsell said.

Hartsell said she was “honored and humbled” to be selected for the prestigious program.

She said national seminars like this one give her the opportunity to sit beside and hear from “some of the brightest minds in modern Holocaust scholarship.”
