Eugenie C. Scott, the former executive director of NCSE and the current chair of its Advisory Council, was presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award by the American Humanist Association at its annual conference in Philadelphia on June 7, 2014. "When our schools teach children the scientific method and the theory of evolution, instead of religious pseudoscience in the form of creationism or intelligent design, they are creating the next generation's innovators and leaders," explained Roy Speckhardt, the AHA's executive director, in a May 29, 2014, press release. "Through her efforts to promote the teaching of sound, scientific principles in our classrooms, Dr. Scott has made invaluable contributions to our educational system." Scott previously received the Isaac Asimov Science Award from the AHA in 1998.
