NGS Teacher Honored With Awards
Newport Grammar School teacher Whitney Butler is being honored. She recently received the Teaching Excellence Award from the East Tennessee Historical Society. Ms. Butler received the award for what the Historical Society called her immersive teaching of history with interactive games and multimedia elements that encourage a well rounded learning experience, as well as for the promotion of the study of local history to her students.
She also received the Award of Distinction for the NGS Historical Society’s Veterans Day Documentary- Inside the Life of a Veteran, which recounted the story of Cocke County Vietnam Veteran Paul Shaver. Congratulations to Whitney Butler and the Newport Grammar School.
