Owen County teachers have been known to go above and beyond when it comes to giving their students top-notch lessons. Owen County High School business teacher, Kay Bush, is no exception.
This summer, Bush will be awarded Kentucky Technology Teacher of the Year, presented by the Kentucky Society of Technology Education.
Bush, who has been teaching in Owen County for 24 years, was nominated by fellow teacher Martha Hamilton.
Chief Information Officer for Owen County Schools, Naomi Cornette, said Bush’s unique style of teaching led her to the award.
“We are very proud of her and her innovative style of teaching that allowed her to win this award,” Cornette said.
Owen County Schools Superintendent, Mark Cleveland, said he is excited to see Bush receive the award.
“She’s the second person from our district to receive this award,” Cleveland said. “We’re very proud of her and her achievements.”
Bush said she is grateful to be nominated. “I feel very honored,” Bush said.
Bush will represent Kentucky for the national Technology Teacher of the Year award. She will be recognized at KySTE’s statewide summer conference.
