A Davis Junior High School teacher is one of only 72 national educators to be honored by a federal agency promoting humanities education. 
 
Yvette Snopkowski, a local teacher from Davis Junior High School, was selected as an National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Scholar from a national applicant pool to attend one of twenty NEH Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshops.
 
The NEH is a federal agency that each year supports summer study opportunities so that teachers can work with experts in humanities disciplines.

Snopkowski will participate in a workshop entitled “America’s Industrial Revolution”.  The one-week program will be held twice this summer at The Henry Ford and is directed by Christian W. Overland
 
The 72 teachers selected to participate in the program each receive stipend to help cover their travel, study, and living expenses.

Snopkowski was the 2012 Utica Community Schools Teacher of the Year.
