The Kentucky Association of Teachers of History (KATH) is seeking members for the 2016-2017 board.
KATH offers a common forum and source of information for all teachers of history in the Commonwealth and provides an avenue for members to share news about research and publications, educational activities, or concerns and problems relating to Kentucky’s history community. KATH is a service organization for those concerned about improving the quality of history education in Kentucky and offers opportunities to network and to attend professional development events, such as our annual conference. In this way we hope to improve the scope and quality of history education throughout Kentucky.
The following Board spots are currently open for 2016-17 (see current Board members here):
- Private/Independent Colleges and Universities Representative
- Public Comprehensive Universities Representative
- Public Historian
Volunteering their time and connections with international, regional or local experts, the KATH board primarily meets to organize the annual meeting. They distribute useful information for history educators (using for example, the H-Kentucky network), and organize task groups to recognize scholarly achievement through a history writing award program: the Anita Sanford Tolson Award for high school students; the Thomas D. Clark Award for undergraduates in American history; the Ray Betts Award for undergraduates in non-U. S. history; and the George Herring Award for graduate level papers.
The KATH board consists of a dedicated group of people working to bring the history community closer together. Encourage your colleagues in the History profession to consider becoming a KATH board member.
