Will Beckley Camera Give

The Charles Marshall Foundation provides for learning opportunity for Will Beckley Elementary School Art Class.

The Charles Marshall Foundation continues their community partnership with the Will Beckley Elementary School by providing cameras for 4th and 5th grade art students. This partnership is serving Will Beckley Elementary School teacher Brian Larsh’s art students for the school, which serves 900 at-risk students from pre-kindergarten through 5th grade.

 “When supplies are needed, we invite organizations to submit their need on our Wish List,” said Rena Loughton of The Charles Marshall Foundation. The Foundation is dedicated to assisting publicly funded schools and hospitals with the supplies they need to continue their work.

The Charles Marshall Foundation offered their assistance in supplying the school with cameras and accessories for a volunteer photography class taught by Dr. Becky Watson of Education Integrated Marketing (EdIM). Watson, who has taught the class to school children in the Yucantan, Mexico, is now bringing the class to Clark County School District art students as a volunteer.
In this case, we were able to help provide instructional equipment for bringing the work of a volunteer together with the school. After developing the class with the Will Beckley Elementary School’s Principal, Jeanne Pleas and Art Teacher, Brian Larsh, Loughton and Watson met with one of Larsh’s art classes last month and spoke to the students about learning photography.

The on-going partnership between the school and The Foundation began earlier this year. “With The Foundation’s support, we’re able to provide this additional opportunity for our teachers and students. Support from our community partnerships like this are priceless,” said Pleas.”

The Charles Marshall Foundation started in 2010 with the goal of improving the health and education in Clark County. The Foundation is taking this opportunity to provide learning materials needed in enhancing the classroom instruction of the Will Beckley Elementary School.
