NORCROSS, August 4, 2010--The Federal Highway Administration recently presented Brockington and Associates a 2010 Exemplary Human Environment Initiatives award (EHEI) for producing "The Immortal 600 Teaching Package."

The History Workshop, a division of Brockington and Associates, worked with several state and federal agencies, including the Federal Highway Administration, the Georgia Department of Transportation, the Georgia Department of Education and Georgia Public Broadcasting, to produce "The Immortal 600 Teaching Package." The Immortal 600 was a group of Confederate POWs held in the Morris Island stockade in South Carolina, where they were exposed to cannon fire from the Confederate and Union armies.

A memorandum from Stephen Clinger, acting director, Office of Human Environment, FHWA, cited the project in the Educational and Training Programs category for "demonstrating how Federal-aid Highway projects can help preserve history."

This wasn't the first time "The Immortal 600 Teaching Package." received honors. Brockington's work on the teaching package was recognized by the Georgia Historical Records Advisory Board with a 2009 Archives Award for Excellence in Educational Use of Historical Records. The package meets Georgia Performance Standards and has been promoted nationally in education newsletters.

Teachers may download the package here.

The EHEIs allow the FHWA recognize and publicize transportation initiatives that make the U.S.'s transportation system work better while remaining conscious of any natural environmental consequences.
