Glendale sixth grade teachers Suzanna Coakley, Stephanie Kasaaback and Jeannette Williams combined their efforts (along with learning support instructor Nathan Pino) to request over $1,800 in funding from the Foundation's "Challenge Grant" program for their students to visit the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh--specifically to experience the Hilda M. Willis Foundation exhibit "Mummies of the World".
In December the class traveled down and were truly amazed to see the largest collection of mummies ever assembled in the world--many dating back hundreds of years ago. This once-in-a-lifetime event coincided with their classroom work on Ancient Egypt perfectly
