The Westmoreland Museum of American Art is offering K-12 educators in Westmoreland County a new free membership program.

Educator members receive museum membership benefits at no cost, and can access collection and exhibition-related programming designed specifically for teachers.

“We value the teachers and educators in our region and wanted to show our gratitude for their amazing work. We know that educators are life-long learners and by removing the barrier of price, we hope that educators will enjoy benefits like member exclusive behind-the-scenes events, discounted tickets, artist talks and studio workshops as well as participating in program offerings designed exclusively for them,” says Anne Kraybill, the museum’s Richard M. Scaife Director/CEO.

“One of the most exciting aspects of the new educator membership is that the museum, in partnership with the Westmoreland Intermediate Unit, will be offering opportunities for Act 48 professional development throughout the year. We are delighted to host our first educators’ only sneak peek and Act 48 session this spring in conjunction with our upcoming exhibition, ‘Mingled Visions,’” says Joan McGarry, director of education and visitor engagement.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
