The Lowell Milken Center (LMC) for Unsung Heroes in Fort Scott, Kansas has awarded its Fellowship to 12 educators this year.

This week six fellows were given the key to the city by Fort Scott City Manager Dave Martin and Mayor Jolynne Mitchell. Last week also six fellows were honored in this way.

The Lowell Milken Center For Unsung Heroes, located at Wall and Main in downtown Fort Scott, has been a part of the renewing of the downtown area, Dave Martin told the LMC Fellows in welcoming them to the city.

The Fellows were presented with a key to Fort Scott and a welcome bag.

This week Lauren Jensen from Virginia, Penny Harth from Oklahoma, Katie Craven from Minnesota, Paula Franklin from Tennessee, Thomas Dennison and Nikos Giannopoulos were the Fellows that came to Fort Scott.

The Center selects model teachers from across America and Europe, drawn from a variety of disciplines, to collaborate on projects that discover, develop, and communicate the stories of Unsung Heroes in history, according to a press release from the center.
