I was one of the privileged individuals to be recognized at the 22nd Annual Excellence in Teaching Ceremony at Campbellsville University on Saturday. Without a doubt May 17, 2008, will stay with me as a highlight in my teaching career.
I have been in the "learning business" (for all of teaching is an extension of learning) in both higher education and secondary schools for 23 years. As I looked around the room on that beautiful sunny afternoon, I could see and feel the pride that each teacher (including myself) brought to your beautiful new student center.
These are the true rewards of teaching. The sense that someone has recognized and appreciated the countless hours outside of the regular academic workday all for the betterment of humanity.
Thank you for your gracious hospitality; moreover, thank you for affording me the opportunity to witness first hand the outstanding surroundings and atmosphere that Campbellsville University has to offer. A special thanks goes to Ms. Kellie Vaughn who was the first to greet me when I arrived early and immediately made me feel at home. I am a firm believer in first impressions and CU showed off what a wonderful institution it has become over the last 100 years.
It was truly an honor to be in your presence - one that I will always treasure.
