Making a Difference: The Story of Irl Solomon & The Difference One Teacher Made in the Schools of East St. Louis

May 19 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

HMLC Docent Irl Solomon has published a book entitled “Making A Difference,” talking about his life as a teacher.

We will be recognizing Irl and celebrating his 1000th Docent Tour, which occurred this year. He will be signing the book after a discussion led by author Joe Regenbogen.

He began at the Museum in 2003; this is his 16th year. Most memorable year: 2013, when he led 101 tours.

He taught for 38 years in East St. Louis Schools, beginning in 1964. The last 29 years were at East St. Louis Sr. High, retiring in 2001. He won two Teacher of The Year Awards, and taught an estimated 5000 kids.
