NORTH CENTRAL PART OF THE STATE

Regional Representatives: Cyndi Noyd, cyndinoyd@gmail.com and Don Collins, collins.d@wenatcheeschools.org

“ESD 171 is under organization! Cyndi Noyd (TRA)  will lead with collaboration from Don Collins (WHS)and Bill Rievolt (Wenatchee Valley Museum). We’ve created a ESD 171 FB page. The FB page will be our teachers ‘communication’ place. We are currently in the process of collecting area teacher names and emails. We are most excited about our monthly meetings. Our museum will provide space and kitchen every 1-2 months. The plan is to pot-luck, socialize, collaborate and educate by bringing in an artist to teach us all a new skill (encaustic, painting, sculpture, etc). We also look forward to meeting at the WAEA convention during the Saturday lunch!” – Cyndi
