East Allen County Schools Social Studies teacher Kevin Jehl has been named a 2014 recipient of the Ford’s Theater Fellowship. Jehl is one of twenty-four teachers nationally who have been invited to Washington DC in July for a week of Civil War enrichment programs. Fellows use walking tours of Washington and landmark site studies to research the lives and oratory of President Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. Teachers who attend this program use the experience as a basis for creating classroom lessons which bring these topics to life for high school students. This award is sponsored by the Catherine Reynolds foundation. Jehl currently teaches United States History at East Allen University HS.
