EMCC Instructor Receives Humanities Award

East Mississippi Community College history instructor Kelly Elizabeth Cantrell of Columbus has been honored with a Mississippi Humanities Council Teacher Award.

Among the accomplishments that earned Cantrell this award was a paper she wrote called, “Cooking Up the Revolution: Food and the Creation of Americans.”.

Cantrell made a presentation during the college’s 'Proud to be an American' program in November 2009.

EMCC says the paper traces the evolution of American cuisine from the colonial era through the early republic, and argues that Americans expressed their political leanings in the Revolutionary era by changing their diet.
