Mike Watson recognized as Volunteer of the Year
By Mark Fudge
Mike Watson was recognized on Thursday, June 9, 2022, at the Middle Cumberland Retired Teachers Association business meeting in Albany, KY, where he was presented with the Volunteer of the Year award. Mike completed hundreds of volunteer hours in 2021-2022.
A native of Adair County, Mike spent twenty-seven years working with students at Anderson County High, teaching Advanced Placement U.S. History as well as various social studies classes, the last ten years operating the library media center.
An historian by training, he has worked many hours over the past forty+ years pursuing his true avocation--researching local history and genealogy, and has published several local history books and articles.
He was editor of the Kentucky Genealogical Society's quarterly publication, Bluegrass Roots, for ten years; served on the Board of Directors of the Friends of the Kentucky State Archives for 22 years; and most recently helped to establish the Adair County Genealogy & History Research Center at Columbia, where he is one of the on-site researchers.
