Beaumont teacher to receive 2021 Community Service Award
The Kentucky Association for Career and Technical Education (KACTE) has tapped Anna Sullinger of Beaumont Middle School for its 2021 Carl Perkins Community Service Award. The group will honor Sullinger July 20-21 during its state conference at the Galt House in Louisville. This award recognizes individuals who have used CTE to make a significant impact on their community and demonstrated leadership in programs and activities that promote student involvement in community service.
Sullinger, whom a colleague nominated, believes that when students feel like part of the community, they are more likely to find success in the classroom. She can often be found volunteering, giving of her personal time, and she values active membership and leadership in several professional organizations.
Sullinger has taught Family and Consumer Sciences at Beaumont for 6½ years. She is also the FCCLA club adviser and a member of the school’s DanceBlue Committee. A native of Maysville, Sullinger graduated from Mason County Public Schools and the University of Kentucky, where she earned a B.S. in Family and Consumer Sciences Education. She later received a master’s in the same area from Eastern Kentucky University, and secured her Rank 1 in Career and Technical Education from UK. Before joining Fayette County Public Schools, Sullinger taught at Grant County High School for 8½ years.
