Hannah McClure Elementary School first-grade teacher Kathy Miller has been recognized by Kentucky’s Office of Secretary of State for her work with her students.
Miller was given the 10th Regional Kentucky Outstanding Civic Education Leadership Award during half-time of the George Rogers Clark basketball game in the Sweet 16 March 18 in Rupp Arena.
The award recognizes a teacher, school administrator, educational leader, legislator or community organization leader who has made notable contributions toward promoting or implementing civic learning to prepare students to be engaged responsible citizens.
Miller and her students began a recycling program at the school and in the community to benefit the Clark County Homeless Coalition and the Ronald McDonald House.
The students placed green recycling bins in several locations around the school. They also painted trash cans that were placed in businesses around town, which were also brought to the school when they were filled to be recycled.
