So the Florida Council for the Social Studies annual conference was this past weekend. It was well attended, and I will be sharing some pictures of our own booth and thoughts on the conference later. Right now, however, I am thrilled to share that the Florida Joint Center for Citizenship‘s own Peggy Renihan, who by the way chair the conference organizing committee, was recognized by the Florida Council for the Social Studies. She was give the Doyle Casteel Leadership Award at Saturday’s awards dinner (co-organized by our own Chris Spinale). This award is given to those FCSS members who have excelled as leaders, advocates, and mentors.
Having worked with Peggy over the past two years, I am completely unsurprised by this recognition. We are grateful for the work she has done and continues to do for both FCSS and for FJCC and PAEC.
Congrats, Peggy, and thanks for all that you do for our profession and our work and, most importantly, our teachers and students.
