Faces of Fort Zumwalt by Dr. Patty Corum

Book Cover   The Fort Zumwalt Education Foundation is proud to announce the release of its first sponsored book, Faces of Fort Zumwalt. The work consists of a 200-page coffee table style book that describes the making and growth of Fort Zumwalt School District.  The book details important facts, events and significant figures over the years that developed and shaped the image of the Fort Zumwalt School District.  Overall, there are more than 700 people named and/or shown in photographs throughout the book, all of whose names are listed in the book’s index.
   Faces of Fort Zumwalt is written by Dr. Patty Corum, former Principal and Deputy Superin- tendent in the District. Dr. Corum was instru- mental in the effort that began the Grow Your Own Teachers Program in 2004 and helped organize and create the Fort Zumwalt Education Foundation to fund the program in 2005. The proceeds from Dr. Corum’s book will be donated entirely back to the Fort Zumwalt Education Foundation.
   Currently, the Grow Your Own Teacher program includes 10 Fort Zumwalt graduates studying at Missouri universities to become teachers in high needs areas such as Special Education, Foreign Language, secondary Math and Science and Industrial Technology. Recipients receive financial support for college and promise to return to teach in Fort Zumwalt School District. Two will graduate this year, joining seven other program alum teaching in our schools. Two new graduates will begin college this fall. Faces of Fort Zumwalt is currently available for $30 at Fort Zumwalt District Administrative Offices, 555 East Terra Lane, O'Fallon, MO 63366
