McComb Teachers Selected for AFT Civic Voices Institute
The American Federation of Teachers (AFT) selected five McComb staff members as Fellows for the Civic Voices International Democracy Memory Bank Project. The McComb staff were among a national cohort of educators who attended an all expenses paid three-day seminar in Birmingham, Ala. where they met and interviewed noted activists and scholars.

Oral History Institutes and Presentations
Two staff attended the esteemed institute in Florida at the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program on oral history collection. In addition, one staff member presented a workshop at the Oral History Association Conference in Denver, Colo. about the partnership between the McComb School District and the Urban School in San Francisco. (See Telling Their Stories on the Urban School website.)
