Congratulations to SPHS 11th grader, Jayden Tran, whose photograph has been selected as part of the Autry Museum of the American West’s Visions of Resilience Exhibition. The photo is titled “Raising Resilience.”
The museum provided the following context for the exhibition: Resilience is a toughness that resides in each of us. This is particularly true of those of us who call the American West home. Through adaptability, creativity, and strength, the diverse peoples of the American West have demonstrated resilience for thousands of years. They have recovered, or are in the process of recovering, from traumatic experiences ranging from genocide and injustice to pandemics, racism, and violence. While healing from these experiences takes time, it is resilience that makes the diverse peoples of the American West who they are.
Students in the American West were asked to share their understandings of, and visions of resilience in the American West. Tran’s photograph will be showcased in the virtual exhibition on Friday, July 15, 2022.
