THE STORY:

The Dawn Marie Rose Tribute Fund
This summer a devoted Visual Arts Instructor, & an elected Region IV Representative for the Texas Art Educators Association, who holds a Master’s Degree in Curriculum & Education, was told she had stage 3 & 4 brain cancer. Both radiation & chemo treatments were needed to stop the growth or slow the growth of the tumor. By fall, unresponsive, the tumor didn’t change & after months of enduring radiation & chemo Dawn was told that she had two months to live. Ever determined, she insisted that she embark on the journey of returning to her classroom & to her beloved students, “her kids” as she calls them. In her steadfastness, she wouldn’t be denied & on August 25th her birthday & coincidently the first day of school, she returned armed with artistic knowledge still intact, but word & name recognition slipping, she persevered. Teaching by day, collapsing by afternoon, she showed her unwavering dedication to the craft that she loves, the students that she loves, her calling as an artist herself to further art education in young minds, for future generations.

In recognition of all that she has given & all that she has attained, this, The Dawn Marie Rose Tribute Fund has been set up to celebrate her achievements & her support in furthering future generations of Artists. With hopes of a Tribute Bench to be placed in the gardens of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art; in addition to this, a Scholarship or Arts Education Honor Roll Gift in her name is planned. Please join me in honoring an exceptional individual, who’s no longer in the classroom, but whose lessons will continue for generations to come, in all those she touches.
