The University of Kentucky College of Education is recognizing Kelly Rich as a "Teacher Who Made a Difference."
Mrs. Rich was nominated by colleague Mrs. Charla Caudill, ECMS Media Specialist, for reasons Mrs. Caudill said was because of "her dedication to our students and staff."
"She comes in early on most days to help supervise students who arrive early to school," said Mrs. Caudill. "She volunteered to go to Marshall County after the shooting to assist with counseling students and support their staff. I could tell when she returned that the Marshall County work was hard for her, but she came back to our school ready to do her job."
The recognition ceremony to honor teachers who made a difference in the lives of their students will be held at the Woodford Reserve Club at Kroger Field in Lexington, Kentucky on Saturday, April 21, 2018.
Mrs. Kelly is the guidance counselor at Edmonson County Middle School.
"She is a great educator and she deserves the recognition," said Mrs. Caudill.
