New York State School Boards Association presents district with banner for history podcast

A history podcast called, “The Missing Chapter: History’s Forgotten Stories,” created by Canajoharie High School teachers Philip Horender and Philip Schoff, earned recognition from the New York State School Boards Association (NYSSBA) this week. Five people hold up a banner during a meeting

NYSSBA presented the district with a banner as part of its “Champions of Change” program.

“It has come to our attention that there is a creative program in your school district that deserves recognition — The Missing Chapter: History’s Forgotten Stories Podcast — and we would like to pay tribute to those who make it possible,” NYSSBA executive director Robert S. Schneider wrote in a letter.

“We understand there are many incredibly meritorious programs and projects throughout the state, and NYSSBA is celebrating yours!”

The two teachers created the podcast as a way to stay connected with their students as they learned remotely during the pandemic.
