Campbellsville University began the Excellence in Teaching Award Program in 1987 with assistance from Mr. Earl Aaron and the Ward, Cundiff, and Aaron Memorial Fund. The purpose of the program is to recognize the quality teaching and learning taking place in the school systems throughout Kentucky. Excellence in Teaching 2022 is Saturday, May 14th at 11:00 AM EST.
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. Over 3,000 teachers have been honored since the program’s inception.
The purpose of this award is to recognize quality teaching in Kentucky schools and to strengthen the field of education. It provides statewide recognition to three outstanding individuals for their leadership and dedication to the teaching profession. Implicit in the award is the expectation that the recipients’ examples may inspire all teachers to excel.
In addition to recognition and an awards ceremony, recipients will receive a personalized certificate. A press release and photo will be sent to the newspaper in the recipient’s community if desired.
