Nominations are now being accepted for the 2014 class of inductees into the Louie B. Nunn Kentucky Teacher Hall of Fame at Western Kentucky University.
The Kentucky Teacher Hall of Fame was established in 2000 through a generous gift from former governor, Louie B. Nunn. Nunn hoped to recognize the vital role that P-12 Kentucky teachers play in the education of young people, ultimately leading to positive impacts throughout the state’s economy. The first class was inducted in 2008. New members are inducted each year.
The purpose of the Kentucky Teacher Hall of Fame is to recognize Kentuckians who have made significant contributions to the teaching profession. Selection is made from individuals, living or deceased, who have spent a significant portion of their professional career in Kentucky and have made noteworthy contributions to the lives of children and youth in P-12 school settings.
Western Kentucky University was selected as the home of the Kentucky Teacher Hall of Fame because of its 100-year history in teacher education and commitment to excellence in this field. WKU has consistently been one of the top producers of teachers, counselors, school administrators, and other school personnel in the Commonwealth.
The deadline is July 15, 2013. Please refer to the following URL for information about the Hall of Fame and to obtain the nomination form: http://www.wku.edu/kythf/.
