"Choices" Exhibit: Stronghurst Alternative High School

April 5-April 8, 2005

Regina and teacher Greg Dotson help set up the exhibit

Stronghurst created an extra period each Friday for all its students to work on the committees for the exhibit.  These included docent, art, and publicity committees, among others.
Students created their own project panels, including those on the Holocaust, Anne Frank, and human rights.  They also created a model of Auschwitz concentration camp and made a DVD of the entire process before and during the exhibit.
Their kickoff event featured APS superintendent Beth Everitt, Mayor Martin Chavez, and councilor Sally Mayer, as well as representatives from Join-A-School.  NMFHRP and Stronghurst are JAS partners.
