Stuart, Florida - Donald Zimmerman, Jr., a teacher at South Fork High School and Adjunct Professor of History at Indian River State College in Stuart, today was among 50 educators from across the country selected to travel to Washington, D.C. this summer to participate in the Fourth Annual Friends of the National World War II Memorial Teachers Network and Conference.

The conference, from July 16-20, will feature presentations by fellow educators and other experts in the area of World War II history, discussions with World War II veterans, tours of sites of World War II significance, and a remembrance ceremony at the World War II Memorial.
“At the heart of Friends’ Teachers Network and Conference program is the concept of community service,” said Holly Rotondi, executive director of the Friends of the National World War II Memorial. “Through a thoroughly prepared and well-devised community engagement program, our educators share what they learned during their time in Washington, D.C. with their students, fellow teachers, and the community at-large. The result is countless service-learning initiatives popping up across the nation that promote critical thinking and personal reflection while encouraging a heightened sense of community, civic engagement, and personal responsibility.”
