Old Independence Education Endowment Campaign

Endowment for a half-time humanities educator position to expand programming.

Old Independence Regional Museum in Batesville, Arkansas, seeks an NEH Challenge Grant to help fund a part-time education position, a key element in the expanding organization's outreach program. Endowment funds would be designated to support the annual salary (half-time) of a museum educator devoted to school and family humanities projects. Old Independence is a regional museum of history and culture serving a 12 county area in north central Arkansas. The museum's physical expansion project, which will quadruple exhibit and program space, is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2005. The new education position will complement the physical expansion with innovative on-site and off-site outreach programs that relate the particularities of Arkansas Ozarks and Delta areas to broad developments in American history and culture.
