The Kentucky Science Teachers Association will honor Brian Radcliffe, with the University of Kentucky Tracy Farmer Institute for Sustainability and the Environment, with a Distinguished Service Award during its annual conference Nov. 4 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Lexington.

The association is honoring Radcliffe for his career as a science educator. Radcliffe has spent more than 30 years teaching K-12 students about science, most recently as a part-time program instructor with the Tracy Farmer Institute. In this position, he leads, teaches and advises K-12 students and teachers as they conduct community-based science projects. Prior to joining the institute, he was a science teacher for Fayette County Public Schools, spending 24 of his 28 years of service at Bryan Station High School.

Radcliffe has been a member of the association throughout much of his career and said the award is a nice recognition of his years of service.

Carol Hanley, the institute’s director of engagement, nominated Radcliffe for the award.

“Brian has been an exceptional teacher his entire life and has served many, many students and teachers,” she said. “I am proud we were able to nominate him for this award.”
