State Representative Steve Riggs presents legislative citation to Dr. George Herring at KATH conference, September 15, 2012

As part of a surprise organized by the U.K. History Department and the former presidents of the Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations, State Representative Steve Riggs presented a legislative citation to our keynoter, Dr. George Herring, Professor Emeritus of the University of Kentucky.

Lunch included the incomparable performance of a Kentucky militiaman in 1812  by the talented teenager, Harry Smith under the auspices of the Kentucky Humanities Council.

The Phi Alpha Theta students from Campbellsville University will serve as guest bloggers for KATH (which will be re-posted to the H-Kentucky listserv) and give a summary of the wonderful keynote and discussion sessions.

The business meeting garnered a positive vote by acclamation for the KATH Constitution 2006 (proposed revisions 2012) which added standing committees to help organize the annual meeting, an Executive Committee 2012-13 (see below) and the presentation of three KATH student writing award certificates.
