Dr. Beverly Ennis, assistant professor of education at Campbellsville University, has received her Ph.D. degree.

Ennis graduated from the University of Louisville-Western Kentucky University Cooperative Doctoral Program. Her Ph.D. is in educational leadership and organizational development.

"She accomplished this goal by being thoroughly prepared and having in-depth knowledge of her study and her research method," said Dr. Brenda Priddy, dean of the School of Education at Campbellsville University.

She earned her bachelor of arts degree in mathematics from Campbellsville College in 1972. In 1976, she graduated from Western Kentucky University with a master's degree in secondary education.

Ennis has been employed at CU since 2006. Before coming to Campbellsville University, Ennis spent four years as an adjunct professor at Lindsey Wilson College.

She also served as district administrator of instruction and federal programs for the Campbellsville Independent School District from 1997 to 2006 and established the Principal's Institute for the Campbellsville School District.

Ennis is a member of the Kentucky Association of School Administrators, the Association of Supervision and Curriculum Development and the Kentucky Association of School Councils. She also spent six years as a member of the Campbellsville City Council. In 2002, she was named Chamber of Commerce Educator of the Year.

Ennis lives in Greensburg with her husband, Larry Ennis, and their two children, Jaclyn and Jamie.
