Learn & Grow together (Kathy Jackman)
TThis piece honors Kathy Jackman who founded a pre-school at the Westover Retirement Center in Hamilton, Ohio. It was on the occasion of her retirement. She also taught there, often using music and her guitar as a tool. The elderly man in the grouping represents the retirees whose lives have been enriched by the presence of the youngsters (& vise versa), and symbolizes that learning and teaching never stop. The closeness of the children to the adults and their eye contact with one another illustrate the loving bonds established at Kathy's school.
