Dr. Sheri Shuck-Hall, associate professor of history and director of the Public History Center (PHC) at Christopher Newport, is a recipient of one of only two Outstanding American History Teacher of the Year Awards given by the National Society Daughters of Colonial Wars. The award, which included nominees from 40 states, "recognizes outstanding service by the exemplification and encouragement of patriotism and interest in American History and in our American Heritage.”

The award recognizes Shuck-Hall’s 17-year career teaching American history and her service as PHC director, as well as her creation and supervision of a large number of service-learning projects and internships for CNU students at local museums and public history agencies. Such work “creates a true partnership that helps make a lasting, positive impact on how the public understands our country’s beginnings and legacy and I am honored to be a part of that,” Shuck-Hall says. “Teaching over the years has inspired me to become a better, more innovative educator and mentor, and with my students, to make a real difference by imparting historical knowledge beyond the classroom while serving the community – truly the best of both worlds!”
