The Story of the Eagle and the Thrush

Anderson Family,
Have you ever taken a close look at The Eagle and The Thrush, the statue that stands proudly outside Michael Anderson Elementary?  There's a story that goes with the statue that you can see in the video above--the artist who put it together wanted it to symbolize how teachers help kids to reach new heights and learn their own songs!
The name of the artist was Miles Pepper.  He was a teacher at Washington State University.  You can find out more about the statue and Dr. Pepper at this website sponsored by the Washington Arts Commission:  The Eagle and the Thrush
