Congratulations to Mr. Murray!

Please join the district in congratulating Mr. Murray on his award!

The 2020 Eileen Mylod Hayden Award for Excellence in History Education recognizes “teachers at middle or high school levels who effectively impart a love of history in their students.”

Neil Murray receives the award for his teaching of 11th Grade American and Military history at Pine Plains Central School District. Neil is a leader in the field of living history which is evolving as a powerful educational tool. Neil’s own respect of, and love for, local history comes through in his teaching and in his broader community engagement. Students are left with a lifelong curiosity and respect for the events, and the people, of the past.
