Claudia Anderson, Adult Education Assistant Program Director for McCreary County,
recently received the Educator of the Year Award from the McCreary County Chamber
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.
