SCC Employee Named Educator of the Year by McCreary County Chamber

Claudia AndersonClaudia Anderson, Adult Education Assistant Program Director for McCreary County, recently received the Educator of the Year Award from the McCreary County Chamber of Commerce. 
 
Anderson was nominated for the award by her peers and one of her adult education students. 
 
In her nomination letter, the student wrote, “Not only is Claudia a wonderful educator, she is my friend and someone who gave me hope when I thought that there was none. Many people come to the center because they are court ordered to come there and many come with no hope, just like I did. (Claudia) treats every person that comes through the doors the same; she gives them hope and helps them achieve their goals. With her guidance, encouragement, and her genuine interest in my education and well-being, I made changes in my life that I had once thought to be impossible; I have competed 60 hours at SCC and I am now working on a Bachelor of Science at EKU…(Claudia) really is an amazing lady and deserves to be recognized for her incredible ability as an educator to the people in McCreary County.”
