Dr. Adam NeSmith has been selected as an Alabama Bicentennial Teacher, one of 12 across the state. As such, he will promote the celebration of Alabama’s 200th year of statehood.
NeSmith said, “It’s a big honor for me, Blount County, and Susan Moore High School. I am trying to be an ambassador. We have such an amazing state.”
NeSmith recently attended a weeklong conference in Montgomery which emphasized Alabama’s rich history, and he is excited to help promote that history.
Plans are currently underway for NeSmith to lead a 2019 learning institute for local educators. His agenda will focus on Blount County history including topics such as the covered bridges and civil rights issues.
NeSmith currently teaches U.S. history to sophomores and juniors at Susan Moore High School. Although students take Alabama history in the fourth grade, he intends to refresh their memories and incorporate some Alabama history into his classes.
