Churchill Teacher Receives MLK Community Leader Award

Leah Dunbar (Churchill Courageous Conversations and Language Arts teacher) was nominated by the City Eugene Human Rights Commission for an annual award to acknowledge her the time and talents she gives to our community and her contributions in the area of human rights and race relations in our community. During the City of Eugene MLK and Human Rights Celebration this weekend, Leah was awarded the “Martin Luther King Jr. Community Leader Award” for 2016.  This is what they wrote about her: Leah is a Eugene area teacher who has dedicated her career to serving children and advocating for educational equity. She developed and teaches a curriculum called Courageous Conversations to high school students to share stories that expose and challenge inequality, nurture the development of critical consciousness and create space for transformative narratives.  We are so lucky to have Leah as part of our family, knowing that she if a member of a much broader family making a powerful difference in the world.
