LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 18, 2003) -- Was there a teacher who made a difference in your life? Was there an educator who opened doors for you and showed you the way toward your future? Have you wanted to thank them, but never found the time to do it?

If your answer is “yes” to any of these questions, the University of Kentucky College of Education and former NFL lineman Dermontti Dawson invite you to participate in a Teachers Who Made a Difference (TWMAD) program Saturday, Nov. 8. The ceremony includes a morning reception and recognition program.

“Too many times we don’t realize the difference teachers make in our lives until long after we’re grown. I know of several teachers that, throughout my life, had a great influence on me. The Teachers Who Made a Difference program gives everyone the opportunity to thank that one special teacher in their life. I'm proud to offer my support to this outstanding recognition program for teachers,” Dawson said.

In 2002, 63 teachers, principals, college professors, and school counselors from across the state were recognized in the Teachers Who Made a Difference program, sponsored by the UK College of Education. About 500 Kentuckians have been honored since the program began five years ago.

The Teachers Who Made a Difference program will honor the first 100 teachers officially submitted for recognition. To nominate someone, visit the College of Education’s Web site and complete the online form. Educators do not have to be affiliated with UK to receive recognition at the event.
