Lincoln County Early Childhood program would like to congratulate our very own, Hannah Ruckel, on being awarded the 2020-21 Campbellsville University Excellence in Teaching Award!

Campbellsville University began the Excellence in Teaching Award Program in 1987 with assistance from Mr. Earl Aaron and Ward, Cundiff, and Aaron Memorial Fund. The purpose of the award is to recognize quality in teaching Kentucky schools and to strengthen the field of education. It provides statewide recognition to three outstanding individuals per district (preschool/elementary, middle school, high school) for their leadership and dedication to the teaching profession.

Hannah was nominated by Brandi Hon, Lincoln County Early Childhood director and Mr. Jeff Craiger, Hustonville Elementary principal.  

Quotes from her nomination are as follows:

(In relation to COVID) Hannah has shown incredible resilience and originality in creating a platform for which students and families could easily interact and continue learning.

Hannah has been tremendous in work ethic, attitude, collegiality and dedication from the time she did her student teaching at McKinney Elementary 7 years ago. I have always been most impressed when in Hannah’s classroom with the calm environment she fosters for her students as well as the seamless transitions/flow in her classroom, which is no small task with 3 and 4 year olds.

Congratulations Mrs. Ruckel. We are so proud of you!!
