Mary is a graphic design major at Longwood. Her work in Point of Departure seeks to better our education system by focusing on students' unique interests.
"Growing Minds is a campaign to transform education as we know it today. The system in place today is standard, mass produced, and uninteresting. The Growing Minds campaign goal is to reshape the system into one that is organic, nurturing, and inspiring to each student.
This campaign enables students to flourish by providing encouragement, independence, and confidence to each unique student. It is crucial to acknowledge the passions and talents of every student and allow them to realize their own potential. By following the Growing Minds model, educators everywhere can start to grasp this innovative and effective teaching practice."
Point of Departure is on display until May 11.
