      Mission Statement:
      The Lowell Milken Center for Unsung Heroes works to transform classrooms and communities through student-driven projects that discover Unsung Heroes from history and teach the power of one to create positive change.

      What We Believe:
      Education has the power to break down walls of bias and create positive change.
      Students deserve role models who demonstrate courage, compassion and respect.
      Each of us has the responsibility to take actions that improve the lives of others.

      What We Do:
      The Lowell Milken Center for Unsung Heroes works with students and educators across diverse academic disciplines to develop history projects that highlight role models who demonstrate courage, compassion and respect. Through our unique project-based learning approach, students discover, develop and communicate the stories of Unsung Heroes who have made a profound and positive impact on the course of history. By championing these Unsung Heroes, students, educators and communities discover their own power and responsibility to effect positive change in the world.

      DISCOVER. CREATE. CHANGE.

      The Lowell Milken Center for Unsung Heroes is headquartered in Fort Scott, Kansas, where our exhibition space provides visitors with dynamic learning to educators engaged in Unsung Heroes throughout history.

      Now in its tenth year, the Lowell Milken Center has reached over 1,300,000 students in more than 10,000 schools in all 50 states, with growing global reach.
