Sarah Segal receives the Gilder Lehrman Oregon History Teacher of the Year award
“Eleven days ago, President Obama held this medal and presented it to the Yasui family,” Segal said. “Someone who walked these halls of this school is recognized as a civil rights leader,”
“The only reason I got this (history) award is because these students brought a voice to Hood River history. President Obama and a variety of people watched it, and these students were your community leaders telling the story of Minoru Yasui.”
