Longing for more of the Christmas season?

Sunday is the last day you can head to the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas to step back in time and enjoy Christmas decorations — and the Season of Stories theme — that decked out the White House in 2003.

“Just like the holidays, great stories have a way of bringing families together,” Laura Bush said about choosing the White House Christmas theme that year.

New representation

The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History will soon have a new voice.

Anthony Edwards of Tarleton State University’s Global Campus will serve on the museum’s 37-member board of trustees and on the innovations and education committees.

“We are excited to have Dr. Edwards join our board of trustees,” museum President Van Romans said. “He brings a wealth of experience that aligns well with our mission and future goals.

“Dr. Edwards’ education and technology background will be an asset as we grow established programs such as distance learning, which has developed math and science curriculum for students in 31 states and Canada and helped more than 72,000 students since its beginning in 2004.”

Edwards joined Tarleton in 2012 and is responsible for the university’s online learning program.

Zadeh named to national council

Fort Worth Councilwoman Ann Zadeh has been named to the National League of Cities’ University Communities Council, the city of Fort Worth said.

The council provides input and guidance to ensure that the needs and interests of municipal officials from university communities are included in national league programs and service, according to the city.

“Service on the University Communities Council will help to ensure that the challenges and opportunities faced by university communities are heard on the national level, from Capitol Hill to the White House,” Clarence E. Anthony, CEO and executive director of the National League of Cities, said in a statement.
