Beveridge Family Teaching Prize Recipients

Established in 1995, the Beveridge Family Teaching Prize honors the Beveridge family's long-standing commitment to the AHA and to K-12 teaching. Friends and family members endowed this award to recognize excellence and innovation in elementary, middle, and secondary-school history teaching, including career contributions and specific initiatives. The individual can be recognized either for individual excellence in teaching or for an innovative initiative applicable to the entire field. The prize is awarded on a two-year rotation—to an individual in odd-numbered years and to a group in even-numbered years.
