NKU honored Reeda Hart as their 2017 Distinguished Alumni this week.  Most of us know Reeda as being CINSAM’s STEM Outreach Director (and from fishbowls), but Reeda retired from Campbell County schools after teaching 27 years.  She spent most of those years teaching at Grant’s Lick Elementary.  During her time at Grant’s Lick Elementary, Reeda’s passion and dedication for teaching was recognized.  She was named Kentucky Elementary Teacher of the Year, and she also received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science Teaching.  After her retirement in elementary education, Reeda Hart worked at NKU (CINSAM).  She worked with 20 school districts across the region by modeling best practices in STEM education.  Reeda Hart continues to use her 40+ years of teaching experience as she offers professional development outside the region.  Reeda is shown here with her invitees (from left to right):  Nancy Burns, KDE Educational Recovery Specialist on loan from Campbell County Schools, Peggy Herald, 5th Grade Teacher at Grant’s Lick, Aaron Himebaugh, 4th Grade Teacher at Grant’s Lick, Reeda Hart, Alan Ahrman, retired Principal from Grant’s Lick Elementary.  All are also graduates from Northern Kentucky University.  Congratulations to Reeda Hart for her well-deserved award.  She has truly touched the lives of thousands.

Pohlgeers Selected for Commissioner of Education's Student Advisory Council Anastasia Pohlgeeres

Anastasia Pohlgeers, a sophomore at Campbell County High School, is one of seven students from across Kentucky named to the Commissioner’s Student Advisory Council, a group that provides input to Kentucky Commissioner of Education Stephen Pruitt.  The purpose of the council is to provide valuable feedback from Kentucky students and to engage student leaders in learning by doing. The group will meet with Commissioner Pruitt and Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) staff to discuss how decisions made at the state level are affecting public school students throughout Kentucky and provide feedback – from a student perspective – on critical issues impacting Kentucky students and schools. The Commissioner’s Student Council is a year-long program for Kentucky public school students in grades 10-12.  The council is comprised of a diverse group of students with ideas and thoughtful insight into how public schools and student achievement can be improved. Congratulations, Ana!
