Campbellsville University honored 166 teachers from 58 school districts throughout Kentucky with the Campbellsville University Excellence in Teaching Award May 10 at the Ransdell Chapel on the CU campus.
Campbellsville University began the Excellence in Teaching Awards Program in 1987 with assistance from Earl Aaron and the Ward, Cundiff and Aaron Memorial Fund. The purpose of the program is to recognize the quality teaching and learning taking place in the school systems throughout Kentucky.
Through the awards program, CU presents certificates to teachers in each grade level [preschool/elementary (P-five), middle grades (six to eight) and high school (nine to 12)] as selected by their school districts.
Stephanie “Leslie” Blair was among those honored. Blair is a third-grade teacher at Briarwood Elementary School in the Warren County School System – a position she has held since 2001. She also has taught at Rich Pond Elementary from 1997 to 2001 and fourth grade at Taylor County Elementary School from 1992 to 1997.
She is a 1996 graduate of Campbellsville University. She received her bachelor’s degree in 1992 from Western Kentucky University and graduated in 1988 from LaRue County High School.
She is married to John Paul Blair. They have two children: Jack and Maggie Blair.
