2007 Outreach to Teach-Taft MS, OKC
This year the 2007 SOEA/OEA Outreach to Teach was held at Taft Middle School on March 2nd. Taft is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year and looking at the front of the building, you can still see the beautiful architecture that was used in its construction. However, inside, there are a great many areas in need of repair and painting. After the holes were filled in by the maintenance crew, over 250 SOEA members attacked the building with paint brushes. The results were fantastic and the change in the building corresponded with a change in attitude, I heard many of the students express, about their school.
