On Saturday evening, March 31st, Mr. Herbie Brock, RCHS Social Studies teacher, was presented with the State Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Outstanding American History teacher award! The purpose of this award is to recognize a notable, full time teacher of American History (and related fields, such as social studies, government and citizenship education) in public, private and parochial schools, grades 5-12. Candidates must meet several criteria and submit a dossier to be reviewed by a committee of judges, two of whom are NOT DAR members.
At Saturday night’s DAR banquet, following introductions by State Historian, Sally Whittington, Mrs. Leslie Miller, the KDSAR State Regent, presented Mr. Brock with his award and a monetary gift. His application has been submitted to the National organization for judging and, if he is selected as the national winner, would be presented that award at the Continental Congress in June, in Washington, DC. In 2018, RCMS teacher, Kathy Bobo, became the first teacher from Rockcastle to receive the state award.
Mr. Brock teaches a variety of social studies classes at the high school, including Advanced Placement Government and Politics and general/Advanced Placement World History (grades 9-12) and is also the sponsor of the RCHS Academic Team. Pictured with Mr. Brock is his wife, Mrs. Courtney Brock, after he received his award. Congratulations to Mr. Brock on this achievement and good luck in the national competition!
