Evansville Signature School Event

We want to express our gratitude to the Evansville Signature School for the opportunity to attend their institution on January 8th, 2024. Signature School, a charter high school situated in downtown Evansville, Indiana, has held a prominent status since its establishment in 2002 as Indiana’s first public charter high school. Recognized consistently as one of the top high schools in the United States, Signature School hosted an exhibition of ours. This exceptional display featured treasures such as the First American printing of the Bible, manuscripts of the Torah and Koran, as well as a chronological assortment from Ancient Greece to the 19th Century. Noteworthy works by influential figures like Thomas Paine and Robert Owen’s ‘A New View of Society’ were showcased, contributing to the intellectual enrichment of Signature School’s high-achieving students. The Remnant Trust extends a heartfelt thanks to Signature School for making these invaluable works accessible to their students.
