Renee Morrison to Present Program at Academe Meeting
Renee Morrison, Coordinator, JSU Field Schools, will be the
speaker for the monthly meeting of Academe on Wednesday, March 8, 2006, at 3:15 p.m. in 1103 C, Houston Cole Library.
Her topic is “Celebrating Environmental Education and the Arts from the Deepest Canyon to the
Highest Mountain in Alabama.” Renee will talk about the past, present, and future of the JSU Field Schools;
she also promises to regale us with stories of growing up on an Alabama dairy farm and may—just may—bring
a few “special guests” from the Field Schools’ live animal collection.
Renee graduated with honors from JSU in 1989. She served as the Director of Education for the Anniston Museum
of Natural History and the Berman Museum of World History for ten years. At JSU, she coordinates programs
“that provide education opportunities for students, teachers and the general public.” She also plans sensory
programs that include hands-on learning, crafts, arts, and storytelling. Her own storytelling abilities have
put her in performances with such other storytellers as Katherine Tucker Windham and Carman Deedy.
You won’t want to miss this month’s Academe program, the final one for this academic year. The program will be
open to faculty, staff, students, and the community.
