Morehead, KY (May 25, 2012) Maysville Community and Technical Colleges Rowan Campus Director Russ Ward has been named Educator of the Year by the Morehead-Rowan County Chamber of Commerce.
Ward was honored at the Chambers annual awards banquet held Thursday, May 24, at the Morehead Conference Center.
I was very honored and surprised to receive this award from the Chamber, said Ward. I am within the ranks of some very extraordinary educators from our area. Mr. Stanley Click, our Academic Coordinator for the Rowan Campus, is on the Chamber of Commerce Board, so I did not consider that his being a presenter of this particular award might be directed toward me. It was an honor to my colleague and friend to present the award.
The Educator of the Year Award is given annually to an individual from the Rowan County School System, Morehead State University, Maysville Community and Technical College, or a local private school who supports and encourages education in Morehead and Rowan County.
"Russ Ward does an amazing job for the Rowan Campus, said the Chambers Executive Director Tracy Williams. We were very proud to present him with Educator of the Year award because he is so deserving."
