Kelly Cordes

Nominated by Cheryl Lough

Kelly and his family have lived in the Prescott area for generations. For many years Kelly has served this community by being a schoolteacher. Three of our children were lucky to have him as their middle-school history teacher. Not only was he able to get their interest and able to actually teach them about our country, but every year he would organize and lead history trips with students. They would travel to D.C., Virginia, New York and Pennsylvania where he would hands-on teach them about the history of our great nation! Never once were our children taught in his classroom which political side to lean toward, he taught both sides equally. He is a true TEACHER HERO and strong Arizona native!
