Allison Helm, Caneyville Elementary 5th grade social studies teacher, has been selected as a national scholarship recipient for the Colonial Williamsburg Teacher Institute 2013 this June. "This is obviously a statement indicating the confidence and respect that the Institute has for Mrs. Helm and will greatly assist her with her social studies students in the coming years," said principal Ronnie Sarver. The intensive six-day Institute immerses participants in American history. Elementary teachers focus on the colonial and the early nation period "on location" in Williamsburg, the restored capital city of 18th-century Virginia, and nearby Jamestown and Yorktown.
