 ASHLAND OIL, INC., AWARDS HONOR 10 OUTSTANDING OHIO TEACHERS
 COLUMBUS, Ohio, May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Representatives from business, education and government paid tribute today to a group of professionals vital to the development of our youth -- primary and secondary school teachers.
 In a special ceremony at Upper Arlington High School here, 10 outstanding Ohio teachers were presented Ashland Oil Teacher Achievement Awards for excellence in their profession.
 Each winning teacher was presented a $2,500 cash award and was recognized by J.A. "Fred" Brothers, senior vice president and group operating officer, Ashland Oil, Inc. (NYSE: ASH); Dr. Ted Sanders, Ohio Superintendent of Public Instruction; and Marilyn Cross, president of the Ohio Education Association (OEA).
 The 10 outstanding teachers are: Coleen A. Armstrong, Hamilton High School, Hamilton; Zoe Agnes Enyedy, Mentor High School, Mentor; Christine Louise French, Garfield Heights High School, Garfield Heights; Laurel Margaret Ginn, Peebles High School, Peebles; Marcia E. Humpal, Westlake Developmental Center, Westlake; Ramona Ann McCollister, Rock Hill High School, Ironton; Elizabeth Ann Miller, Upper Arlington High School, Columbus; Carolyn Jean Staudt, Copley High School, Copley; Timmond Klopfer Tilton, Winton Woods High School, Cincinnati; and Mark Beecher Torlone, Goshen High School, Goshen.
 "The link between quality education and the future of today's students is evident," Brothers said in congratulating the recipients. "We cannot expect youth to excel tomorrow if we don't train them and provide them with quality resources today. Teachers are vital in shaping these resources, and their outstanding efforts and initiative must not go unrecognized.
 "In its fifth year in Ohio, Ashland Oil's Teacher Achievement Awards program remains popular and continues to grow as the public takes an opportunity to show appreciation to teachers. In making their selections, judges confirmed that innovative, progressive teachers should not be the exception in the classroom, but must become the norm for children to achieve success in a global marketplace and for Ohio to remain a leader in education," Brothers said.
 Offering his praise to the winners, Sanders said, "It is most appropriate that teachers -- often the unsung heroes of our educational system -- are the focus of these awards. I commend the leadership of Ashland Oil for its involvement with teachers and with education. Its program serves as a model for other businesses on ways to commit the time, resources and energies needed to improve the education of our children."
 Representing 107,000 members of the OEA, Cross said, "I am pleased that Ashland Oil selected today -- National Teacher's Day -- to honor these outstanding educators. The company's recognition of the classroom teacher's pivotal role in shaping future leaders has been gratifying and a great morale booster for teachers everywhere."
 Nominations were open to the general public through Feb. 14, 1992. Any certificated Ohio teacher currently teaching kindergarten through grade 12 was eligible. Ten winners in each of the four states in which Ashland Oil sponsors the program -- Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky and Minnesota -- were selected by a panel of educators. Criteria for judging included philosophy of teaching, classroom teaching innovation and community service. More than 6,400 nominations were received from the four states.
 The Teacher Achievement Awards program is one of several Ashland Oil initiatives focusing on the importance of cooperative working relationships among business, education and the public in providing quality opportunities and experiences for youth.
