'Country School' film gets Emmy nomination
August 3, 2012 - Andrew Potter
The film "Country School: One Room – One Nation" has been nominated for a regional Emmy award in the historical documentary film category. The film was produced by Quad Cities filmmakers Kelly and Tammy Rundle. It features several scenes from Marshalltown's Taylor No. 4 schoolhouse as well as an interview with Gilbert Ingraham, of Laurel. Ingraham died at the age of 100 this week. "Our experience at Taylor No. 4 was one we will never forget," Tammy Rundle said. "The school is a wonderful resource for anyone interested in early education and the one-room school experience. Julie Lang was exceptional to work with. I wish I'd had her as a teacher in my younger years." Tammy said they were grateful to be able to meet Ingraham and they were saddened to learn of his passing. The regional Emmy awards will be handed out Sept. 22 in Kansas City.
