Haddock receives Distinguished Service Award from Kansas Geographic Alliance

Submitted by Mirta Chavez

Brandon Haddock, student services coordinator at the LGBT Resource Center with Intercultural Learning and Development, was recognized on Sunday, Feb. 27, with the Paul and Pat Phillips Distinguished Service Award to Geography. The Kansas Geographic Alliance awards this recognition to geographers who lead and promote geography education in Kansas and beyond.

Haddock continues to be active with the alliance, offering seminars for the summer teaching institute organized by the alliance called "P4: People, Prairie, Place, and Patterns." Most recently, Haddock was a keynote speaker for the annual conference of the three Kansas councils that promote geography, social studies and history in the schools: Kansas Geographic Alliance, Kansas Council for the Social Studies, and the Kansas Council for History Education. Haddock presented "We Are Still Here: Indigenous Identity in the Making of Kansas." Haddock also presented "Indigenous Kansas" in 2020 and 2021 for Kansas Geographic Alliance's "P4" Teacher Development Summer Institute.

In addition, Haddock was a classroom teacher for Debra Bolton’s National Geographic Society-funded project "Girl Power Geography," teaching remote sensing and geographic information systems. Bolton was recognized as Kansas Geography Educator of the Year in 2019.
