Teachers Who Made a Difference to Return in 2024
We look forward to returning in 2023! The UK College of Education’s Teachers Who Made a Difference program began more than two decades ago and has recognized hundreds of teachers. Sponsored by private donations, the event was founded by Mary Ann Vimont, associate professor and director of alumni for the college.
Why do we do this? Teachers are exceptional people! They stimulate our minds, encourage and challenge us, support us, and inspire us to become who we want to be!
Honorees can be teachers, professors, principals or other education professionals. They do not have to be graduates of the University of Kentucky or residents of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
There is no specific selection process for the program. We simply want to recognize educators who made a positive impact on the lives of their students. However, the number of honorees to be recognized is limited, so organizers ask that nominators limit recognition to one educator per year.
