Seniors Thank Memorable Educators Through FAME Awards

winnerfame2LEXINGTON, Ky. (2/19/13) – The annual FAME Awards in Fayette County Public Schools offer graduating seniors a chance to publicly thank that one exceptional teacher, personable coach or trustworthy mentor who has truly made a difference in their educational experience. For instance, Tates Creek’s Brynna Monk honored Karen Morrison, who taught her in fourth grade at Lansdowne Elementary and helped her gain confidence, particularly with reading and writing. Brynna credited her with “a major change in my life.”
 
Morrison, sitting next to a grown-up Brynna at Saturday’s FAME celebration, was overcome with emotion. “This is why I’ve chosen to do what I do – to affect the life of a child,” she said. “This is the best compliment I’ve ever received.”
 
Eighty-seven seniors submitted essays this year. The five high school winners read their essays aloud, and the rest of the students introduced their nominees with brief excerpts. PNC Bank sponsored the Feb. 16 reception and recognition program, held at Bryan Station High School, and gave each winner a leather portfolio. In addition, Lowe Promotions provided book scholarships to ecampus.com, and Office Max supplied gift cards.
