Seven MOTAL Volunteers to be honored by One OC

Seven volunteers from the Museum of Teaching and Learning to be honored April 20 by One OC, at its “Spirit of Volunteerism” luncheon.

Volunteers spent hundreds of hours leading fundraisers, establishing communication systems, attracting membership, preparing docents, creating a helpful and notable website, writing exemplary curriculum and providing financial leadership and management among many tasks that honored the history of 5 Mexican-American families in California.

 “I am thrilled that this world class group of volunteers will be recognized for their hard work and dedication to a story that needs to be told, the story of desegregation in schools across California,” said Dr. Greta Nagel, president of Museum of Teaching and Learning (MOTAL).

Volunteers to be honored from MOTAL are:

·         Mary Deming (Fullerton) (shown on right)

·         Pat Pisano (Stanton)

·         Dorothy Taguchi (Orange)

·         Lucy Vezzuto (Newport Beach)

·         Al Wallace (Orange)



MOTAL provides informative, engaging, and interactive exhibits and activities that explore achievements and methods of education from the past, present and future. The Museum facilitates communication between and among students, families, educators, employers, and legislators and inspires its community to pursue further growth and development and education as a cornerstone of civil society. Their current exhibit A Class Action , “Mendez et. al. v. Westminster et. al.” is currently showing at the Old Orange County Courthouse in Santa Ana.  For more information, visit MOTAL’s Web site or call 714-814-4221.
