The American Geographical Society (AGS) selected Tracy Law ’85, Ph.D. as a 2018 AGS Geography Teacher Fellow. Dr. Law is one of 50 teachers selected from across the United States.

Dr. Law is invited to attend the AGS Fall 2018 Symposium, “Powering Our Future Planet” on Nov.15-16 in New York City.

“We are very pleased to be able to invite Tracy, who is one of the top geography teachers in the country, to join us in New York City in November,” said Dr. John Konarski, Chief Executive Officer of the American Geographical Society. “AGS Geography Teacher Fellows are an integral part of the AGS community, leading and educating future generations in geography and geospatial science.”

The symposium will provide fellows with the chance to gain knowledge and awareness of real-world geographic workplace skills demanded by today’s geospatial companies.

“I’m excited to attend the conference,” Dr. Law said. “It’s a great opportunity to both network and gain knowledge that I can then pass on to my students.”  

Dr. Law teaches Advanced Placement Human Geography, AP Psychology and Honors World Issues here at The Summit. She also is the advisor for the award-winning Rostrum, The Summit’s yearbook, and was recently appointed as the school’s Campus Historian.
