Battle High School Teacher named the 2021 James Madison Fellow for Missouri

The James Madison Memorial Fellowship Foundation of Alexandria, Virginia announced today that it has selected Battle High School social studies teacher Travis Daller as the 2021 James Madison Fellow for Missouri.

The award is intended to recognize promising and distinguished teachers, to strengthen their knowledge of the origins and development of American constitutional government, and thus to expose the nation’s secondary school students to an accurate knowledge of the nation’s constitutional heritage.

 Named in honor of the fourth president of the United States and acknowledged “Father of the Constitution and Bill of Rights,” a James Madison Fellowship funds up to $24,000 of each Fellow’s course of study towards a master’s degree. That program must include a concentration of courses on the history and principles of the United States Constitution.

Recipients are required to teach American history, American government or civics in a secondary school for at least one year for each year of fellowship support.
