WASHINGTON, DC - Sept. 24: National Council for History Education Board Chairman Theodore K. Rabb and Sen. Robert C. Byrd, D-W.Va., during a ceremony at the U.S. Capitol honoring him for his contributions to education. The National Council for History Education presented Byrd, its first recipient, with the award named in his honor. David McCullough, a Pulitzer Prize-winning historian, Medal of Freedom recipient and member of the National Council for History Education's Board of Trustees, made the presentation. In the future the award will be given to policymakers and public figures who "work to ensure that history is a strong and meaningful part of our students' education," according to a press release.
