"Stories Behind the Story"
On September 23, Mrs. Shirley R. Lee delivered the "Stories Behind the Story" presentation based upon her four years of researching the history of public education and school desegregation in Lunenburg County. During the course of her research, she collected more than 100 photos and other documents which were donated to the Lunenburg County Historical Society. Her book, Trails and Trailblazers: History of Public Education and School Desegregation in Lunenburg County, Virginia 1870-1970 is expected to be published in 2015. It examines and highlights the events of yesteryear surrounding public education in Lunenburg; through the eyes of former educators, students, and citizens during that period. The well-attended event was sponsored by the College of Education and Human Services. Mrs. Lee received her Master’s Degree in School Administration and Supervision from Longwood College in 1985.

The 130+ participants learned all about reading comprehension and questioning strategies from national literacy expert Doug Buehl, were delighted by award-winning author and illustrator Henry Cole’s banquet presentation, and enjoyed hearing four regional authors—L. M. Elliott, Meg Medina, A. B. Westrick, and Jason Wright—discuss their writing craft. Twenty-four concurrent sessions rounded out the Institute program. In addition to current Longwood graduate students, participants included administrators, classroom teachers, reading specialists, literacy coaches, and librarians from all across Virginia.
