The Banyan Singing Tree of the Beloved Community


Laurie Marshall

The Banyan Singing Tree of the Beloved Community, created as the final reflections for the coaching program of George Washington University's Center for Excellence in Public Leadership. The leaves symbolize the gifts the coaches hope to give with their new skills. The birds symbolize their dreams for themselves as a coach. The butterflies symbolize the transformation that occurred in their program. Such a creative way to wrap up an academic program.
