Faculty Fusion

“Tis education forms the common mind; just as the twig is bent the tree’s inclined.” This quote from the pen of Alexander Pope exemplified one of the principal reasons why teachers from the seven Shawnee Mission district schools joined the Faculty Association.

S-M East boasted a one hundred per cent membership association. In their four meetings a year teachers learned from lecturers and programs as teachers. Committees formed the working branch of the association. Illustrating their accomplishments was the Scholarship Committee which awarded two college scholarships in education. Shawnee-Mission teachers cultivated the seed of knowledge so that it would grow with their students to maturity.
