Daviess Co., KY teacher honored

DAVIESS CO., KY (WFIE) - A Daviess County teacher is recognized as a top educator.

Daviess County High teacher Stephen Hall has been named the 2014 Outstanding Economic Educator of the Year by the Kentucky Council of Economic Education.

Hall has been teaching students about finance by using a stock market game and different financial scenarios. Students had to plan a budget for an imaginary trip to New York City as part of one exercise.

Hall says he's honored by the recognition,"It spread like wildfire. Everyone is congratulating me and it's not about accomplishments. It's about what we do for our kids and getting them ready for the real world."

Hall will be recognized at a summit next month in Louisville and receive a $1000 award.
