We firmly believe with all the value Iowa places in education,
it would be appropriate to establish a monument to teachers for
the state of Iowa. This past January the Capitol Planning Commission
agreed and thus on May 6, 2012 at 12:00 (noon) we will be dedicating
a new memorial on the Iowa State Capitol grounds, in DesMoines.
This memorial will feature one word in bold relief…TEACHER.
For us it will be a memorial to Steve France and all others educators
that make a difference. (more)
