This Website is for:
TEACHERS, STUDENTS and SPONSORS
who hope to share their vision of the Future by remembering, and better understanding, the past.
AS TEACHERS we are challenged to offer our students fun and exciting ways to engage in the “World of Learning.”
AS STUDENTS we are challenged to look beyond the complexity of the subject and find those hidden connections that give the material meaning and excitement.
AS SPONSORS we are challenged to remember the future is built from stones that were once seen to be only rubble, and that as students and teachers ourselves, we bear the responsibility of sharing our talents.
We are all TEACHERS. We are all STUDENTS. We are all SPONSORS. Realizing this Truth enriches lives and makes our world more complete.
There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about us. We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to drop us a line.
The Boomer Years is an original, stage show by brothers, Eddie and Frank Thomas that chronicles the coming of age of the baby boomer generation. It moves from 1946 through 1964 in an hour and twenty minutes with 50 songs from the era, 250 news headlines and a backdrop of 140 posters and photos.
The Iuka Heritage Educational Program is offering schools and students in the Tri-State area of Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee a chance to attend a Boomer Years performance at The Little Church (performing arts center) in Iuka, Mississippi during the fall semester of 2018. There is no charge to schools or students for the performance.
Eddie and Frank Thomas are no strangers to performances for students. They presented their Angels on the Backroads multi-media stage show to 25,000 high school and middle school students.
The Little Church is on the National Register of Historic Places and has recently received a sparkling new paint job.
