Grant Spotlight: World Religions field trip

May 3, 2018 / Catherine Nicholas / Spotlight - Grants

This year, the MLWGS faculty has applied for nearly $25,000 worth of Foundation support in the category of classroom instructional activities.  Funding in this category is available for supplemental activities or materials that teachers would like to use to enrich their instruction.  In March, World Religions teacher Kinsey Hall accessed some of that funding to pay for 31 students to tour Satchidananda Ashram (aka Yogaville) in Buckingham County, VA.  Yogaville is a fascinating site that includes an interfaith shrine constructed in 1986 intended to “celebrate the unity behind the diversity of the world religions.”  Kinsey Hall is one of the instructors that helps make MLWGS such a great place to learn, and we’re happy to be able to support her instruction in this way.
