WKU announces finalists for Distinguished Educator Awards
By Tommy Newton
Bowling Green, KY - Western Kentucky University today announced the 2021 finalists of the WKU College of Education and Behavioral Sciences' Distinguished Educator Awards. Finalists include Tammy Dennis, Dale Decker, Dana Soto, and Lorie Estes from Green County, Rodney Smith from Cumberland County Middle School, and Lindsay Gibson from Russell County Middle School.
"While it's hard to believe we're rounding out a year of non-traditional instruction, our teachers have felt every shift and change that came with our new 'normal'," said Corinne Murphy, Dean of WKU's College of Education and Behavioral Sciences. "Our teachers adapted and persevered through every roadblock and moment of uncertainty, showing that education, while considered very traditional in nature, is just as nimble and innovative as the other professional fields that made sharp pivots during the 2020 year. Our teachers incorporated these changes with grace, and we're thrilled to honor them with some well-deserved recognition."
Each award celebrates the individual and significant contributions educators make to the teaching profession. From elementary education to teacher mentorship, WKU recognizes the following P-12 educator finalists based on their inspiring and specialized solutions in the classroom:
Visual Performing Arts
Middle Grades (6-8)
