'adDRESSING Women's Lives', an innovative educational initiative at The Weber School in Atlanta, pairs students with senior women in an oral history project with an artful and cross-generational twist.

Spearheaded by Covenant Award recipient and educator Barbara Rosenblit, along with Sheila Miller, the school's arts educator, the program has attracted national attention for its educational value, uniqueness and effectiveness.
