Star of Destiny Chapter, NSDAR, recently named Kelley Kerlick, a seventh grade Texas history and eighth grade U.S. history teacher at Cinco Ranch Junior High, Outstanding Teacher of American History. Seven Lakes High School senior Phillip Powell received the Certificate of Appreciation for his American flag service.
Kerlick has been teaching in Katy ISD for 21 years, and while she has taught many subjects, her greatest joy is teaching American History. She loves this country and strives each day to passionately present the history of the United States in a way that not only touches the minds of teens but, more importantly, their hearts. Star of Destiny member Rebecca Miller, assisted by her daughter Anna, who is one of Kerlick’s eighth grade students, presented Kerlick with the award during the group’s January meeting.
Powell, a senior at Seven Lakes High School, currently has subscribers in the Seven Meadows and Cinco Ranch Section II subdivisions where he places the American flag in yards for six American patriotic holidays each year. Powell developed this flag service after he volunteered for his uncle in Tyler, Texas. He returned to Katy and developed his own business.
