Neil Murray receives the award for his teaching of 11th Grade American and Military history at Pine Plains Central School District. Neil is a leader in the field of living history as a powerful educational tool. Neil’s own respect of, and love for, local history comes through in his teaching and in his broader community engagement. Students are left with a lifelong curiosity and respect for the events, and the people, of the past. Congratulations, Neil!
We are still working through plans for a full announcement and recognition, with an in-person event anticipated and hope for, pending pandemic conditions, in the spring of 2021.
