A note from our Dear Friend,

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

This year has seen unparalleled attention toward Hindman Settlement School due to a special announcement I was honored to make in April: “I am a 2019 Obama Fellow.” The most frequent question I have received is, “What does it mean to be an Obama Fellow?” The easiest way for me to answer the question from a work standpoint is to say that the goal of the fellowship is to help me learn how to take the work of Hindman to the next level. I personally Photo courtesy of The Obama Foundation believe I have a responsibility to seize every opportunity in this day and time to do the work it takes to help change our corner of the world. Eastern Kentucky is unlike anywhere else I have ever been. The challenges we face are intense, but the potential we have is unmatched to meet the obstacles of our day and time. I don’t say that lightly. Leaders have dug in for generations and faced many of the same problems we face today, just shaped for their time and resolve. But the work of Hindman Settlement School is already aligned for such a time as this.

Nearly one in five children have dyslexia. Since 1980, the Settlement has been

offering tutoring programs for children with dyslexia. These tutoring programs include an After-School Tutoring Program, a Summer Tutoring Program, and a Reading Lab Partnership—a collaborative effort with Knott County Public Schools, now in its tenth year. In addition, we provide dyslexia information, training, and support to the parents, tutors, and teachers of children who learn differently.

Cowboys Don’t Quit

READING LAB PARTNERSHIP

During the 2018-19 academic year, Hindman Settlement School continued to partner with the local school district to conduct a reading intervention program in four elementary schools – Beaver Creek, Carr Creek, Emmalena, and Hindman. Settlement interventionists, along with staff from each school, provide specialized instruction to students with dyslexia indicators in grades K-3. Teachers and specially trained instructional assistants work both one-on-one and with groups of students to help them master letter identification, word identification, word attack, phonemic awareness, and passage comprehension skills.

“Blake is a very energetic, cowboy loving, first grade student who really struggled with reading. According to his mom, it was a struggle to get him to school. Every day, she would drag him down the hallway all because he didn’t want to go to reading class. Now, after just one semester of the After-School Program, his confidence levels are off the charts. He has gone from reading two letter words to reading books. He is especially fond of western and cowboy stories. Blake said, “I am a cowboy, and cowboys don’t quit, not even when trying to learn how to read.”

AFTER-SCHOOL TUTORING PROGRAM

The After-School Tutoring Program is offered on our historic campus in Hindman and at community sites throughout eastern Kentucky. In addition to sites in Knott, Floyd, Pike and Laurel Counties, our program expanded to a fifth location in Perry County during the 2018-19 program year. Students meet with tutors for 2.5 hours after school, one evening each week for 15 weeks in the fall and spring semesters. The program is operated by parent volunteers who are trained by Settlement staff to deliver our evidence-based curriculum.

SUMMER TUTORING PROGRAM

The goal of the Summer Tutoring Program is to equip students with the academic skills they need to succeed in public schools. The intensive five-week program consists of individualized reading instruction, small group math tutoring, and writing activities. Spelling, grammar, and direct vocabulary instruction are all incorporated into the reading instruction. The program operates five days a week, seven hours a day, for five weeks.

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT:

Andrew

Andrew came to the Summer Tutoring Program with a look of dread on his face. He didn’t make eye contact with tutors or peers. As he progressed in the program, his confidence skyrocketed. By the end of the summer he entered the building talking and laughing. Andrew has shown consistent achievement and demonstrated the ability to apply acquired knowledge to reading, math, writing and computers. He mastered multiple levels in reading, including phonemic awareness, short vowels and consonants, closed syllables, and syllable division. During writing instruction his cursive handwriting improved greatly. He now uses correct letter formation and was eager to participate in journaling. Some writing skills mastered were use of correct punctuation, adding details to his writing, types of sentences, and recognizing types of writing. Congratulations, Andrew! More than 90% of students receive scholarship assistance to attend our Summer Tutoring Program. Help children like Andrew overcome barriers to success and support the Dyslexia Summer Tutoring Program Scholarship Fund today!

ARTS ENRICHMENT Summer Artist Residencies Arts enrichment supports school readiness skills and important educational opportunities for students from diverse backgrounds and with diverse needs. For this reason, we have infused the arts into our Summer Tutoring Program! Dyslexia staff partnered with professional artists to offer weeklong residencies with students. Offerings included traditional music and dance with Sam Gleaves, creative writing with Nancy Allen, photography with Beth Reynolds, and painting with Jenn Noble.

To support the continuattion of arts enrichment efforts, you can make a donation online at HindmanSettlement.org or mail a gift to PO Box 844, Hindman, KY 41822.

EVALUATION SERVICES

In order to determine whether our programs will benefit a child, the child and their parent or guardian must participate in an evaluation process. Evaluations are held each month and are led by Settlement staff and other trained professionals. This year we evaluated 74 children, 18 of whom enrolled in the After-School or Summer Tutoring Program.

PARENT & TEACHER TRAININGS

The Settlement conducted two training workshops for parents, teachers, and tutors this past year. A total of 105 individuals were trained in our evidence-based curriculum using proven strategies.


VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT:

Hart Chapter DAR Last summer, members of the Hart Chapter National Society Daughters of the American Revolution from Winchester, Kentucky hosted a special dance and tea for students in our Summer Tutoring Program. Before the party began, Fara Tyree, the chapter’s chaplain and the coordinator of this activity, led sessions on proper etiquette. Mrs. Tyree explained the importance of saying, “please,” “thank you,” respecting their elders, sharing with one another, and other topics. Following the sessions, the children, ready to exhibit what they had learned, lined up for the cupcakes, cookies, and punch that awaited them. Although their mouths watered for the sweets, they remembered what the Hart Chapter had taught them and remained politely composed. While chapter members emphasized how happy they were to serve and be involved with Hindman Settlement School, we were thrilled to partner with this esteemed group of ladies to teach valuable life skills to our students. Thank you Daughters for your continued support of our students! We welcome volunteers, both individuals and groups, to visit campus and volunteer with our students, on the farm, or in the archives. To discuss opportunities, contact the Office of Advancement.


Keeping people mindful of their heritage has always been a significant compo-

nent of Hindman Settlement School’s educational philosophy. We’re proud of our strong and colorful history. As a result, we develop and maintain cultural heritage and traditional arts programs focused on honoring and passing along these traditions. These well-known programs promote education and story sharing, allowing us to tell the history of central Appalachia in vibrant and unique ways.

Fun on the Fiddle

PICK & BOW AFTER-SCHOOL MUSIC PROGRAM

Hindman Settlement School Pick & Bow After-School Music Program is a community-based music education program that teaches local youth bluegrass and old-time music in Knott and Floyd Counties. This program is in partnership with two local public schools, Hindman Elementary School and May Valley Elementary School. The program is open to any student, age seven or older, who wishes to participate and music lessons are accessible for differently-abled students. The focus of these music lessons is for students to experience the rich musical traditions of Appalachia and to learn to perform and cooperate in a string band ensemble.

STUDENT

“Ayden chose to play fiddle and he has loved it! The Pick and Bow program, to me, represents Appalachia. I feel fortunate that Ayden can participate. If it weren’t for this program, I don’t know that he would have heard fiddle music. But he’s getting to play the fiddle, and I think that’s a very valuable thing. It gives him the opportunity to have the feeling of productivity, the feeling of accomplishment, that he may not have had otherwise, and also to maintain the connection to his very important heritage that is Appalachia and eastern Kentucky.”

-Maranda AYDEN’S MOTHER


COMMON THREADS AFTER-SCHOOL FIBER ARTS PROGRAM

Common Threads, sponsored by South Arts, is an after-school art program offering instruction in textile and fiber arts such as quilting, screen printing, weaving, and knitting.

VISITING ARTIST RESIDENCY PROGRAM

For the 2018-2019 school year, Hindman Settlement School partnered with The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts’ VSA program, the international organization on arts and disability, to fund six weeklong artist residencies in Knott County schools. Residencies included photography with Liz Terry at Hindman Elementary, pottery at Beaver Creek Elementary with Jessica Evans, painting at Jones Fork Elementary with Jenn Noble, metalworking with Jill Robertson at Cordia School, drama with Megan Duff and Ronnie Walker at Carr Creek Elementary, and mural painting with Lacy Hale at Emmalena Elementary. These residenices offered new opportunities for students to explore artistic mediums through the talents of local artists.

Introducing

FIRESIDE INDUSTRIES Hindman Settlement School has partnered with the University Press of Kentucky to launch Fireside Industries, a new literary imprint and novel venture designed to provide stability to the Appalachian literary tradition by publishing new works and reissues of classics that greatly contribute to the region. Printed for the first time since 1941, Lucy Furman’s The Quare Women: A Story of Kentucky Mountains is a lightly fictionalized account of Settlement founders Katherine Pettit and May Stone’s entrance into the Hindman community. This book endures as a testament to the spirit and legacy of these trailblazing women and offers contemporary readers a unique look at the United States’ early rural/urban divide. For the Hog Killing, 1979 is the first book of artist and agrarian Tanya Amyx Berry. In November 1979, as in years before, neighborly families gathered to do one of the ceremonious jobs of farm life: hog killing. Berry, documenting two days at the farm of Owen and Loyce Flood in Henry County, captured this culmination of a year’s labor raising livestock. Here, in the resulting photographs, published for the first time, the American agrarian tradition is shown at its most harmonious, with strong men and women toiling with shared purpose towards a common wealth. Order your copies today in our online store at HindmanSettlement.org!


ON-CAMPUS & ONLINE LITERARY EXPERIENCES

As the seedbed for the Appalachian literary tradition, the Settlement is in a unique position to broaden its reach across the region and nation, welcoming more writers and readers of all identities to benefit from the century-long inheritance of place-based literature.

Workshop

Ninety-three writers attended the 42nd annual Appalachian Writers’ Workshop. The keynote was given by Dorothy Allison following a locally-sourced feast prepared by chef Kristin Smith.

Retreats

This year we hosted two three-day writers’ retreats in the fall and spring on our historic campus. A total of 35 writers attended. Retreats were facilitated by Pauletta Hansel and Crystal Wilkinson.

The Makery

The Makery, an online writing studio designed to broaden literary craft and deepen relationship to place. For the 201819 catalog, 37 authors participated in 13 sessions covering fiction, poetry, non-fiction, and special topics.

In His Words “During the Workshop, I had genuine conversations with so many participants. It seemed like the distance between hello and talking about the inner workings of their very souls was nothing more than a smile and a breath. During the week, I cried over participant readings; over the introduction of one of our workshop leaders and his work with Appalachian youth programs; over how fiercely I felt the words whispered and hollered by Dorothy Allison. During the week, I hugged so many people whose beings are imprinted on my body now.”

Championing local foods and addressing food insecurity is at the core of the

Settlement’s emerging foodways programs. The local foods movement brings a multitude of opportunities for producers, food crafters, and entrepreneurs, and Hindman Settlement School is devoted to supporting our local food system through our Grow Appalachia program along with new initiatives, including the Knott County Farmers Market, The Community Cannery, and The Farm at Hindman Settlement School.

GROW APPALACHIA & AGRILACHIA

Grow Appalachia, a partnership with Berea College, seeks to solve the persistent food security issues in the Appalachian region by restoring the historic relationship between people and the land. Grow Appalachia’s central mission is to help as many people grow as much food as possible using organic and sustainable methods and the encourage more production for local markets. Families in Knott County Grow Appalachia take part in gardening classes, receive help with tilling their gardens, and are provided with plants, seeds, fertilizer. This year, we added an additional educational series, “Agrilachia.” This series added more in-depth courses on production and cultural ties to HOUSEHOLDS TONS OF FOOD COST PER food and agriculture.

”I had never grown anything but flowers, but the Settlement opened the door for me to learn how to use a small area of my lawn to produce enough veggies for the summer and a freezer full to enjoy this winter. This has been one of the best blessings in my life. I’ve learned a new skill and gained the satisfaction of having veggies to share with others. I am thankful for the guidance through the whole learning process and to know I have received a lifelong sustainable skill. Thank you Grow Appalachia and team!”

PRODUCER SPOTLIGHT:

Elmer Handshoe Regulars of the Knott County Farmers Market expect to see the red Ford pick-up backed into the pavilion. In fact, many days the line forms before Elmer Handshoe has time to drop his tail gate. Handshoe has been a staple at the Knott County Farmers Market since the market opened in 2015, and is adored for his corn, various heirloom beans, and potatoes. This year, despite less than favorable growing conditions, Handshoe produced his best year yet and was a strong supporter of the launch of the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Programs. The Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program provides low-income seniors with $28 vouchers to purchase fresh, unprocessed, locally grown fruits, vegetables and herbs from eligible vendors at our Market. Knott County boasted a higher-than-average redemption rate of 74% over the past season. When asked about the program, Handshoe noted, “The Senior Vouchers are the best thing we have ever done. We’re helping our folks, and that adds money for us producers, too. This year will be my highest sales season yet.”


A NOTE FROM OUITA

DUMPLIN’S & DANCIN’: AN APPALACHIAN FOOD & DANCE WEEKEND

The fourth annual Dumplin’s & Dancin’ event was held during December 2018. Fifty-six farmers, musicians, chefs, seed savers, dancers, food activists, and others committed to the preservation of Appalachia’s foodways and dance traditions converged on our historic campus to take part in a series of workshops on both food and dance. James Beard Foundation Award semifinalist Ouita Michel and chef Kristin Smith served as Chefs-In-Residence for the event. Ouita Michel Restauranteur & HSS Board Member “Kentucky Agriculture and local foodways help us define who we are. As we move into the future, these foodways can provide a window and thread to the past, while opening the door for others to expand the Kentucky table with new traditions and diverse cultures. Celebrating our locally produced and prepared foods helps us connect to each other and builds the most important thing of all, friendships with one another and a deep sense of community.”

SEEDS & STORIES

The inaugural “Seeds & Stories,” a locally-sourced feast with performances by storytellers and musicians was held on April 4, 2019. The evening started with a showcase of seed saving through conversation. Following a feast, resident storytellers and musicians Sheila Kay Adams and Bobby McMillon delivered rousing performances of various folk songs and stories. Tthe Settlement was thrilled to, once again, host people from all walks to share stories, songs, and a delicious meal together.


FARM & GREENHOUSES

Our farm and greenhouses are growing and moving in the direction that will result in a happier, healthier, and more vibrant community. The Settlement’s small-scale farm operations is nearing the end of its second year of operation. The foodways team has incorporated insights from our first year into increasing our yields, including modifying the layout of the gardens, streamlining planting and harvesting, and finetuning our processes for distribution. Our greenhouse operations have also been in full swing this year. In total we have three greenhouses. Our 25’x70’ heated high tunnel produces hydroponically-grown tomatoes and peppers. In total we have 210 plants growing at a time and we do two plantings per year. The bounty of tomatoes that are produced in this high tunnel enable us to sell to local restaurants, schools, and people who are looking to buy large quantities to can and preserve. Our 15’ x 50’ high tunnel, built this summer by Grow Appalachia, gives us the capacity VALUE OF to grow in-ground crops like kale, lettuces, and turnips and extend the season PRODUCE GROWN into the winter months. Our 40’x 90’ greenhouse will open in 2020 and will be a fully-functional aquaponic facility.

In addition to vegetable production, the farm team raised three rounds of pastured poultry. Day old chicks are purchased from a hatchery and arrive to us through the mail. After brooding for 3-4 weeks, chickens are moved to mobile pens on the farm where they spend the next 4 weeks outdoors on pasture. Pens are moved daily to a fresh salad bar of grasses and bugs and any other delicacy that they scratch around and find. They are fed a non-GMO chicken feed, of which they have constant access. After 7-8 weeks they are processed and are then sold at Farmers Markets or used in our dining hall.
