Taylor County Adult Learning Center Director Midge Hunt received the Change Award at the Campbellsville Board of Education meeting on Monday, Sept. 9.
Superintendent Kirby Smith honors three Change Award winners each month, including a certified and classified employee and a community member.
Hunt received the certified/community Change Award.
The awards are given based upon six elements, which spell the word Eagles. They include Encouraging and exhibiting Attitudes of Greatness, while Leading with high Expectations to Success.
Hunt’s co-worker Jennifer Willis nominated her for the honor.
According to the nomination letter, Hunt, who has worked at the center for 20 years, has touched the lives of many students and co-workers throughout her tenure.
“During her time in adult education, she has taught homebound activities, created the Family Literacy program, taught in corrections and has been involved in many committees and groups within the community,” Willis wrote.
“She has always gone out of her way to help others, no matter what their circumstance.”
Hunt will retire this year, and Willis said she will be greatly missed.
“She has been an amazing role model and mentor to staff and students,” Willis wrote.
“We are excited for her as she begins this new adventure in her life.”
Hunt has worked for CIS since 1999.
