Campbellsville University began the Excellence in Teaching Award Program in 1987. The purpose of the program is to recognize the quality teaching and learning taking place in the school systems throughout Kentucky.
Through the awards program, Campbellsville University presents certificates to teachers in each grade level (preschool/elementary, middle grades, and high school) as selected by their school districts.
This year, Kim Patterson, a teacher at the Henry County Early Childhood Center, and Laura Adams, an English teacher at Henry County High School, were chosen for the honor.
The purpose of this award is to recognize the quality teaching in the schools of the state of Kentucky and to strengthen the field of education. Implicit in the award is the expectation that the recipients’ examples may inspire all teachers to excel.
