Thank an Educator: Kentucky Education Excellence Awards Nominations Now Open
A new awards program aims to recognize Kentucky teachers, staff, and administrators who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to achieve education excellence in 2020 and 2021. Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield's Education Excellence Awards are now accepting nominations through October 8 for those who have taken extraordinary steps to further student education in Kentucky.
Two award winners will be selected from each of five regions: Greater Louisville, Lexington/Central Kentucky, and Eastern, Western and Northern Kentucky. Each of the 10 winners across the state will be honored with a special recognition ceremony and a $2,500 donation from Anthem to their school for classroom supplies or equipment.
"Teachers, custodians, school nurses, principals, and everyone associated with education in Kentucky are among the true heroes of the last 18 months. It's been a challenging time to be an educator and we too often take them for granted, yet education is a critical social driver of health and their contributions have been tremendous," said Kennan Wethington, commercial president of Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Kentucky. "These awards are intended to provide another path for students, parents, or anyone to honor those who have gone the extra mile - and put a little money in their schools' education funds."
