Wake Forest Museum of Anthropology receives grant from foundation
June 20, 2007
Wake Forest University’s Museum of Anthropology was awarded a $9,900 grant from the J.C. Tice Fund of The Winston-Salem Foundation to help publicize the museum’s education programs for schoolchildren in Forsyth County.
The grant will fund a publication describing the museum’s education programs. The new booklet will allow the museum to share information to a wider audience. In addition to raising awareness of existing programs for elementary and middle school students, the publication will also highlight the museum’s new offerings for high school students. In the fall, the Museum of Anthropology will provide curriculum-based outreach programs linked to high school classes in world history, social studies and art.
