WKCTC marks fourth year recognizing regional educators; nominations accepted online until Nov. 30

Being an educator was already a challenging career before COVID-19 was added to the mix. Recognizing pre-kindergarten through high school educators, administrators and staff members who have gone beyond their daily responsibilities is even more important as school employees continue to face challenges due to the pandemic.

For the fourth year, West Kentucky Community and Technical College will host a regional awards and scholarship program to recognize those pre-kindergarten through high school educators, administrators and staff members who work tirelessly on behalf of students in WKCTC’s 10-county region.

Nominations of outstanding teachers, superintendents, principals, professional and support staff are being accepted now for WKCTC’s 2021 Regional Educators Awards and Scholarship Program. Nominations can be made by faculty, staff, students, and parent. Nominations will not be accepted from nominees’ family members, individuals outside WKCTC’s service area, or family members of WKCTC employees.

Nominations can be made in the following categories:

• Distinguished Faculty Award – Preschool/Kindergarten – 5th grade faculty

• Distinguished Faculty Award – 6th grade – 12th grade faculty

• Distinguished Administrator – individuals who hold the title of director, assistant director, assistant principal, principal, etc.

• Cornelia Reece Unsung Hero Staff Award, which is named in honor of Cornelia Reece, who was involved in K-12 education in Paducah for 13 years with the Family Resource Center and 13 years in Knoxville, Tenn., with Project Graduation. Reece is the wife of Dr. Anton Reece.
