Teachers Hall of Fame to Dedicate Memorial


At least 113 American educators have died in the line of duty dating back to the 18th century. The National Teachers Hall of Fame compiled the list. The group is dedicating a memorial to the fallen educators tomorrow (THUR) in Emporia. Hall of Fame Director Carol Strickland says the group's research goes all the way back to 1764. 

The names of the teachers are etched in gold on two black granite monuments shaped like open books. Strickland says the roll includes astronaut and teacher Christa McAuliffe and James McKee, principal of Goddard Junior High School near Wichita. McKee was killed by a student gunman in 1985. The dedication ceremony will take place tomorrow (THUR) at the memorial plaza on the Emporia State University campus.
