Feb 22, 2012

Maysville historian Jerry Gore will be rewarded for his educational efforts with an award from the National Education Association. Gore will be receiving the Carter G. Woodson Memorial Award, during the NEA Human and Civil Rights Awards Dinner in July. "I am highly humbled and highly honored because I do not see it as an honor to me but an honor to community and state," Gore said on Tuesday. "It relates to the lessons we learned from slavery and Underground Railroad that have ties to what we are learning today."
