W&M alumnus named Mass. Teacher of the Year
When Kevin Dua ’09 does anything, he puts his all into it. Whether it is working as a high school history teacher, serving with AmeriCorps’ City Year, or organizing a group of William & Mary students and faculty to break the Guinness Book of World Record for the most people dancing to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” Dua never fails to go above and beyond. His hard work is finally being recognized. He has been named the first African-American recipient of the 2017 Massachusetts History Teacher of the Year, presented by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.
