Graves Hi's Leonard KCSS Teacher of Year

The Kentucky Council for the Social Studies concluded its 2012 convention recently, naming Graves County High School’s Barry Leonard as its Kentucky High School Teacher of the Year. Leonard serves on the steering committee for the KCSS along with fellow GCHS teacher Jennifer Hunter, who nominated him for the award. Hunter received the same prestigious award in 2008. Leonard serves on two state social studies committees: the standards collaborative work group and the Kentucky Literacy Academy for Social Studies, along with one national curriculum committee for social studies. He has presented at the National Council for History Educators in Boston, Mass., and in Kansas City, Mo., and also for the Teacher Quality Institute at Murray State University this past June. Leonard teaches U.S. history, Advanced Placement U.S. history, and AP government. Current KCSS president Rick Daniel (left) of the Jefferson County Public Schools, is shown here, congratulating Leonard on winning the award.
