This short promotional film from 1983 highlights Huntsville artist Charles Pebworth, a sculptor who has works around the country in corporate and museum and gallery settings. Produced by Fletcher Von Zander, this film gives information about Pebworth’s work as an artist and educator at Sam Houston State University. Also included is an interview with Betty Moody, founder of the Moody Gallery in Houston.
Sam Houston Normal Institute or School was created by an act of the Texas Legislature in 1879 "to elevate the standard of education throughout the State, by giving thorough instruction and special training to our present and future teachers". It became the first Normal Institute west of the Mississippi River and began shaping education in Texas for generations.
 
Sam Houston Normal College became a member of the American Association of Teachers Colleges in 1922. In 1923 the curriculum to prepare teachers for elementary schools was expanded to prepare teachers at all levels in the public schools and Sam Houston Normal Institute became Sam Houston State Teachers College. In 1938 the Sam Houston Catalog was altered to reflect a broader horizon and an expanding concept of its educational mission. Courses contributing to the preparation of those students who wished to enter the professions such as dentistry, medicine and law were offered as pre-professional courses. In 1965 the word "Teachers" was dropped from the name of the institution and in 1969 the institution became Sam Houston State University.
 
The College of Education at SHSU strives to elevate the standard of education throughout the State and the Nation achieving national accreditation as an NCATE accredited institution since 1954.
 
For more than 130 years, Sam Houston State University has been preparing students for meaningful lives of achievement. Its motto, "The measure of a Life is its Service," echoes across SHSU's six colleges and beyond campus through student research, creative endeavors, service learning, volunteering and more.
