Mrs. French-Troy in Alabama

Dawson’s Lower School Library/Media Specialist Mrs. Amy French-Troy will be part of a select group of 300 students and adults in the reenactment of the Selma to Montgomery voting-rights march of 1965.  Mrs. French-Troy left Colorado to travel to Alabama on Wednesday, March 18.  The National Park Service is sponsoring this program called “The Selma to Montgomery Walking Classroom.”  From March 20-25, all participants walked the same trail as the original marchers and camped at the same sites along the 54-mile route.  Upon her return to Dawson, Mrs. French-Troy will present a slide-show of her adventures at a Lower School assembly on Friday, April 10.  Congratulations to Mrs. French-Troy and all of the participants.
