Kevin A. Tierney, a 52 year-old teacher at Rolling Hills Middle School in El Dorado Hills, was selected by the California Society for the Sons of the American Revolution to receive a scholarship to attend a course on the American Revolution presented by the Freedoms Foundation of Valley Forge, Penn., earlier this summer.
The scholarship paid the $1,400 tuition for the course, plus money for travel. The course took Tierney from Charlotte, N.C., to Washington, D. C., on a journey to explore battlefields and museums of the Revolutionary War. Tierney, a veteran teacher of 20 years, said he was excited for the opportunity and grateful that the CASSAR is committed to support history education.
Teachers who may wish to apply for this scholarship in the future should reference the CASSAR website at californiasar.org.
