The American Rosie Movement

A Rosie Moment | the rosie room announcement | October 7th

We are excited to announce that the first schoolrooms in America to be named for American Rosie the Riveters will be in Gilmer County High School in Glenville, WV. The formal ceremony will be Wednesday, October 19 at the school. Two rooms will be named “The Rosie Room” – Ronni Facemire’s middle school communications room and McKinley Buckley’s high school American history room. Each will have a display designed with cooperation of The Freedom Museum in the Netherlands, students at GCHS, Girl Scouts, a communications professor, and others. Schools across America are planning to follow the lead of Gilmer County  High School.
