Sojourner Truth was an African- American abolitionist and women’s rights activist who was born into slavery but soon escaped with her infant daughter after serving many miserable years to harsh masters.

* We continue to recognize the significant achievements of African Americans during Black History month by acknowledging George Washington Carver. George Washington Carver was born into as a slave in Missouri. As he grew up, he began to learn everything from useful domestic skills to textbook knowledge. He attempted to get a degree as an art or music teacher, but his professor discouraged him because he believed that Carver wouldn’t succeed. Carver then began to study plants and flowers, and later became the first African American to earn a Bachelor of Science Degree. After graduating, George Washington Carver began to study uses for Peanuts.

Christina Marshburn WHS Teacher of the Year

Congratulations to WHS Teacher of the Year Christina Marshburn

Christina Marshburn embodies everything one would expect from a theatre teacher: she is poised, confident, and delightfully dramatic.  One can find Christina at school until late hours throughout the school year as she directs the school one act in the fall, guides students to direct their own one acts in the winter, and does everything under the sun related to directing the musical in the spring. This year, Mrs. Marshburn guided and mentored students as they wrote their own one act play on school shootings, a piece which moved many viewers to tears.  During the summer, she seeks opportunities to hone her craft by attending workshops and continues to work with local theatre students. Her commitment to the growth of her students inside the classroom, on the stage, and outside of the classroom is remarkable.  One of her most impressive qualities is her ability to draw students to the field of teaching.  Through her passion for theatre education and inclusive classroom setting, she demonstrates what it means to be a compassionate yet firm educator whose students rise to whatever task asked of them.  Mrs. Marshburn also serves as the Curriculum Leader for the Fine Arts department.
