The Indian Hill Exempted Village School District congratulates Indian Hill High School Teacher Wendy Silvius for being one of 50 teachers in the country to be named an American Geographical Society (AGS) Geography Fellow Teacher. Silvius, in her 15th year serving students at Indian Hill, will attend an exclusive symposium at Columbia University in New York City as part of her selection.

“Ms. Silvius is one of the best in her field, and we are pleased the incredible effort she delivers each day in her classroom for our students is being recognized on a national stage,” said Indian Hill Superintendent Dr. Mark Miles.

 

“We are very pleased to be able to invite Wendy, who is one of the top geography teachers in the country, to join us in New York City in November,” said Dr. John Konarski, CEO of the American Geographical Society.

 

According to AGS, Geography 2050 is the most important and widely recognized geographical/geospatial event in North America during the fall semester. CEOs and senior executives from preeminent geospatial companies along with leading experts and representatives from government, not-for-profits, and academia attend the AGS Fall Symposium.

 

“It is an honor to be able to learn at the distinguished Earth Institute at Columbia University,” said Silvius. “I look forward to collaborating with some of the best geography minds in the country, and to bring that knowledge back to my Braves.”
