PHILADELPHIA — Indian River Central School teacher Robert M. Kuba will be presented with the state Senate Liberty Award for his heroic actions Jan. 15 when he disarmed a 15-year-old student who had brought a rifle into his seventh-period earth science class.

Sen. Patricia A. Ritchie, R-Heuvelton, will present the award, which is considered one of the highest civilian honors a New York resident can receive.

According to the state Senate website, the honor is awarded to people who have merited special commendation for exceptional, heroic or humanitarian acts and achievements on behalf of their fellow New Yorkers.

The presentation to Mr. Kuba will be held at 9:45 a.m. today at the Indian River Central School offices.
