Educators are role models who inspire, support and exhibit unwavering confidence in their students. Since 2010, the University of Pikeville (UPIKE) annually recognizes a select group of passionate and service-minded educators in its Distinguished Educators Hall of Fame.

The prestigious award honors those whose contributions to learning have inspired generations of students and made significant impact in the field of education. After being nominated by their peers, former students or community members, the 2018 group of professionals will be inducted on Thursday, Oct. 18, at 6 p.m. in Booth Auditorium.

This year’s inductees include Cassandra Akers of Stanville, Teddie Renee’ Buchanan (posthumously), Tammie Hobbs Hensley of Pikeville, Deborah Lemaster of Paintsville, Jeff Shannon of Prestonsburg, Modena Sallee of Lexington, Stephen A. Trimble of Louisa and Emily Faye Warne of Paintsville.

The campus and community are invited to join in celebrating education and the dedication of this year’s inductees.
