Albany Native John Huie Honored as Outstanding Educator

John Huie, Outstanding Educator AwardAlbany (Georgia) native John Huie was recently honored as the Outstanding Educator in Conservation in the Southeast. The award was one of six presented by Wild South, a well-known non-profit conservation organization headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama.

Huie was cited for his many decades of service to America's youth through his leadership of the North Carolina Outward Bound School and as founding director of the Environmental Leadership Center of Warren Wilson College, a four-year liberal arts college in Asheville where Huie now resides.

In addition, Huie was praised for his instrumental role in developing "Muddy Sneakers", a new program which re-connects children in public schools to the natural world. This program is now being replicated in public schools throughout the South. Currently Huie is an educational consultant who guides and assists families with struggling teenagers.

An honors graduate of Albany High School in 1956, Huie holds degrees from Davidson College, Emory University, and the Ph. D. from the University of California, Santa Barbara. He says he traces his love of the natural world to his years growing up in Dougherty County "roaming and exploring the woods, rivers, creeks, caves, and swamps -- and most of all Radium Springs which still haunts my dreams."

Huie grew up on Rawson Circle in Albany, was an outstanding scholar and athlete for Albany High School. He was the recipient in 1956 of the H. T. McIntosh Award for Citizenship bestowed by the Albany Herald's own H. T. McIntosh. His mother, Mildred Nix Huie, was a beloved radio personality in Albany during the 1940's and 1950's and a member of the staff of the Albany Herald.
