Rim Educt. Foundation Board meets new visual arts instructor Jerad Powell and Stephanie Phillips

On October 5th, Rim of the World Educational Foundation Board members spent the morning touring ROP classes with ROP Director Stephanie Phillips.

Due to retirement, three valuable and experienced ROP teachers had left at the end of the 2015/16 term. The board was delighted to see that those teachers had been replaced by fresh new talent that will service their students well in years to come. All the teachers are experts in their subjects and have a true passion for teaching and mentoring students.

The students in all courses were enthusiastic and ready to learn. Although many of the students will be off our mountain to a college after graduation, other will stay here in the community and become valuable member of our growing economy with the skills acquired in the ROP courses.
