Gulf Shores Middle School Advanced Art Students Participate in The Memory Project

Four GSMS advanced art students were selected to participate in The Memory Project. The Memory Project gets its name from its first intention, which was to provide handmade, heartfelt portraits as special memories to children in orphanages.  Now the intention has expanded to touching the lives of youth around the world facing many types of challenges, while opening our hearts and minds so they can touch our lives in return. These four portraits will travel to Sierra Leone, Africa. The students traced an outline of their hands on the back of the portraits as a way of symbolically touching hands with the child. This was a very fun project for my students, and I feel that making these portraits touched their hearts. Pictured: Kylie Dills, Phoenix Wallace, Marlie McCartney and Ariana Daily.

This workforce development system offers a seamless educational journey for individuals to enter in high demand career pathways at every stage of life too meet the current and future demands of business and industry.
Our goal is three-fold: to help students network within the community to bolster their career efforts, to provide a non-traditional way for RU to recruit and retain local talent, and to expose students to career options that lead to quality jobs right here in Baldwin County.
We give a huge thanks to Riviera Utilities with Sharon Cureton & team, Gulf Shores Utilities, North Baldwin Utilities, and Daphne Utilities for offering this opportunity for our students!
