Campbellsville, KY - Campbellsville University honored 177 teachers from 66 school districts throughout Kentucky with the Excellence in Teaching Award on Saturday, May 16 at the Ransdell Chapel on the CU campus.

Dr. Thomas Floyd, chief of staff, office of the Commissioner of Education, said, "I'm here today to recognize the quality of teaching and learning taking place in school systems throughout Kentucky."

He said being a teacher today isn't easy, as teachers wear multiple hats perhaps including counselor, disciplinarian, parent, friend, bus monitor, instructional leader, club sponsor and confidant." However, he told the teachers that a lot of progress had been made in Kentucky in recent years and people in the rest of the country want to emulate what Kentucky does.
