Award-winning historical storyteller Decee Cornish returned to Durham Intermediate this week to visit with the lucky 5th and 6th grade students. Cornish was back by popular demand on Tuesday, Jan. 26 and Wednesday Jan. 27, telling animated and historical stories that tie into the student’s curriculum. He has visited DIS for the past few years and is a crowd favorite, with students always asking “for just one more story” before returning to their regular class schedule.
Cornish is a local favorite and has earned recognition for his incredible storytelling abilities. He is recognized as the 4-Time Texas State Storytelling Champion and also received the 2015 National Storytelling Champion title.
