Sayre School’s F. Kevin Simon History Symposium for secondary history and social studies teachers took place on Saturday, February 24, 2018, on the Sayre campus. This year’s symposium, "If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they don't want to hear." -George Orwell, Freedom of Speech and Press in America and Abroad, drew record attendance, featuring speakers Jane Daily, University of Chicago Department of History and Law School; Geoffrey Stone, University of Chicago Law School; and Ann Cooper, Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.

In 2002, the symposium was named in memory and honor of its founder and director, F. Kevin Simon. According to Head of School Stephen Manella, "Imagine a professional development experience that intertwines scholarly expertise, collegiality, and intellectual stimulation all at no cost to the participants. That is Sayre's F. Kevin Simon Symposium.  For nearly three decades, secondary level history teachers from Kentucky, Tennessee, and Indiana have benefited from this unique program."
