Regional Educators Awards and Scholarship Program

Education is for improving the lives of others and for
leaving your community and world better than you found it.

educatorWest Kentucky Community and Technical College’s Regional Educators Awards and Scholarship Program honors educators who have gone beyond their daily responsibilities and played a tremendous role in the shaping of education in our region. Specifically, the award program seeks to: 

  • Recognize outstanding contributions to prekindergarten, kindergarten, elementary and secondary education as well as the advancement of understanding and support for continued education
  • Honor the vital role all our educators, administrators and supporters play in education.

“The Regional Educators Awards and Scholarship Program is a small gesture that provides important recognition to a few of the countless educators who work tirelessly on behalf of all their students in our region,” said WKCTC President Anton Reece. “We know we have great secondary partners throughout our region who do what they do because they love it and not for recognition, but we feel they should be recognized because of the vital role they play.”

Older educatorA special committee of individuals, from inside and outside the profession, who are familiar with criteria for evaluation of the services in secondary education, will make the recommended selections.

In conjunction with the awards program, a scholarship for WKCTC students studying to become educators has been established to encourage and assist our region's future educators.
