Hello! I'm Chip Manley and I teach Social Studies at Montgomery County High School.
I was born and raised in Mt. Sterling and graduated from MCHS in 1988. I returned here to teach in the mid-1990s and have been teaching High School Social Studies since then. My mother and grandmother both taught for over 40 years in the Montgomery County School System and I feel privileged to carry on that noble tradition. My wife, Leah Manley, also teaches at the high school. We are the proud parents of a daughter, Dana, who is a student in the Montgomery County system.
I did my undergrad studies at Morehead State University and completed 24 hours of History graduate work at the University of Kentucky before returning to Morehead to earn my teaching certificate and my Masters in Secondary Education.
Currently, I teach United States History, AP European History, and History Through Film. For over a decade, I have served as the Assistant Coach for the school's Mock Trial Team. The MCHS Mock Trial Team has won a record 13 State Championships. I am honored that Head Coach Jon Mansfield invited me to be a part of the great legacy that he has built with the Mock Trial Team.
In my classroom, I hope to instill in my students both an interest in history as well as a desire to learn more about it. I feel that by learning from our past, we can apply that knowledge to the challenges we face today and tomorrow.
