BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (1/23/14) – Nominations are being accepted through July 15 for the 2015 class of inductees into the Gov. Louie B. Nunn Kentucky Teacher Hall of Fame.
The Kentucky Teacher Hall of Fame was established in 2000 through a generous gift from former Gov. Louie B. Nunn.
With his gift, Nunn hoped to recognize the vital role that P-12 Kentucky teachers play in the education of young people, ultimately leading to positive impacts throughout the state’s economy. The first class was inducted in 2008.
The Hall of Fame recognizes Kentuckians who have made significant contributions to the teaching profession.
Selection is made from individuals, living or deceased, who have spent a significant portion of their professional career in Kentucky and have made noteworthy contributions to the lives of children and youth in P-12 school settings.
WKU was selected as the home of the Kentucky Teacher Hall of Fame because of its 100-year history in teacher education and commitment to excellence in this field.
WKU has consistently been one of the top producers of teachers, counselors, school administrators and other school personnel in the Commonwealth.
Members of the 2014 Hall of Fame class - Golda Pensol Walbert, Debra Burgess and Cynthia S. Wooden – will be inducted Feb. 6 in Frankfort.For more information and to nominate a teacher, go to KYTHF online.
