MAYSVILLE, KENTUCKY - April 27, 2022 - The National Association of Geoscience Teachers (NAGT)  is pleased to announce that the 2022 Outstanding Earth Science Teacher (OEST) Central Section Winner is Yvonne Garrison, high school science teacher at Mason County High School. The annual award is for "exceptional contributions to the stimulation of interest in the Earth Sciences at the pre-college level."

The Central Section Committee of the National Association of Geoscience Teachers was particularly impressed by Ms. Garrison's development of project-based learning units and the fieldwork that accompanies these units, the partnership she has fostered with community members and the implementation of geologic and environmental solutions to real world problems. The detailed example of how she engages students in project-based geoscience learning gave the committee a clear picture of her passion for earth science and environmental teaching and her dedication to Mason County High School students and the profession.

NAGT was established in 1938 with the goal to improve geoscience education, emphasize the relevance and cultural significance of the earth sciences, and to disseminate knowledge to educators and the general public. The competitive Outstanding Earth Science Teaching Award program was established in 1971 to identify, recognize and reward excellence in teaching. The NAGT commends Yvonne Garrison for her dedication to her students and her outstanding earth science teaching.
