A media specialist from Wilmer-Hutchins High School will be digging into the California Gold Rush over the summer.
Specifically, Valerie Tagoe will attend a seminar on the California Gold Rush at the University of California–Davis after having her application accepted for the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History Teacher seminar.
“I am thrilled to attend this seminar and bring the information and lessons I learn back to my campus,” Tagoe said. “This will help me collaborate with our teachers on this major event from American history.”
The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History is a nonprofit organization dedicated to K–12 history education while also serving the general public. The institute will pay for much of Tagoe’s airfare for the seminar, and Tagoe will stay for free on the UC campus.
