Friends, We, in the company of World Arts Foundation, Inc., are delighted to announce that our friend, Michael “Chappie” Grice, will be awarded the national Human & Civil Rights Trent Council Award on Friday, July 2, in New Orleans. A seasoned teacher and administrator for more than 40 years, many feel Mr. Grice is deserving. Join me in thanking Michael “Chappie” Grice for his contributions and celebrating his recognition. When asked about the award, Mr. Grice is quick to acknowledge his mentors and teachers, especially his dad. He is just a s quick to acknowledge his friends and family who support his work. Known for leadership and compassion for youth, he is writing his first teacher education textbook “Hustlin’ Backwards: Precisely What Not To Do In Public Education and Why.” His two earlier documentary films were screened in the San Francisco Black Film Festival. This year, in addition to teaching mathematics through aviation and airway science for middle school youngsters, he will produce the Youth Film component of the Portland African American Film Festival in November. With his shrinking leisure time, he likes to golf and spend time with his two “granboys.” Of course, planning for the next “Keep Alive the Dream” MLK, Jr. Tribute starts about now. Looking ahead, Mr. Grice expects World Arts Foundation, Inc. to collaborate with others, convert the twenty-five plus years successful MLK, Jr. Tributes, and myriad effective practices, to supply more answers and more effective strategies for teachers, families, and youth in public education. We invite you to see the new intersection at www.wafinc.org. World Arts Foundation, Inc. is… “Working hard at the intersection of education and the arts.”
