Troy University enters partnership with American Village to bolster U.S. history and civics lessons in Alabama classrooms

A memorandum of understanding was signed between Troy University and the American Village Citizenship Trust to create a Young Leaders Program designated to educate students on the founding and the history of the United States.

“We can’t take anything for granted,” says TROY Chancellor Dr. Jack Hawkins, Jr. “We are very proud at Troy University to link with and partner with the American Village to help Alabamians understand truly in a much deeper way their responsibilities in civics and in the knowledge of history and understanding what we have to do in order to move forward.”

President Emeritus of the American Village Tom Walker says that the partnership will give the American Village access to resources through TROY that will help spread a supplemental U.S. history curriculum to schools throughout the state.

“What it does is augment the ability of the Village in ways to expand further into serving teachers and those who are in the classrooms throughout our state,” says Walker. “It helps provide resources beyond that which we could do alone.”
