 ASHLAND OIL, INC. AWARDS HONOR 10 OUTSTANDING KENTUCKY TEACHERS
 FRANKFORT, Ky., May 6 /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 the State Capitol, 10 outstanding Kentucky 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 Gov. Brereton Jones; Mac Zachem, senior vice president of external affairs, Ashland Oil, Inc (NYSE: ASH); and Marnel Moorman, president-elect, Kentucky Education Association.
 The 10 outstanding teachers are: Karen Sue Bunney, Mary Todd Elementary School, Lexington; Bonnie Susan Cecil, J. Graham Brown School, Louisville; Martha James Clark, South Oldham High School, Crestwood; Donnie Satchwell Flynn, Boone County High School, Florence; Rosellyn Kirk Hamblen, Westport Middle School, Louisville; Nannette Stovall Johnston, Vine Grove Elementary School, Vine Grove; Perry Puckett, Ballard High School, Louisville; Mary Ann Russell, Murray High School, Murray; Thomas Edward Welch, Jessamine County High School, Nicholasville; and Stephen Craig Worful, Atherton High School, Louisville.
 Jones said by their very nomination by the public, the winners have shown how their skills touch lives every day. "On behalf of the commonwealth, I applaud these outstanding teachers and their extraordinary efforts in developing our most precious resource -- our young people," he said. "Ashland Oil has led the way in forging a very crucial partnership between business and our educational community. This program is a splendid example of how essential the two are to each other's success," he added.
 "Our teacher-winners represent one of the most important parts of the education equation," Zachem said in congratulating recipients. "Innovative, committed teachers provide the training and motivation necessary for our youth to excel and achieve in tomorrow's world."
 "In its fourth year in Kentucky, 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 cannot be the exception in the classroom, but must become the norm for children to achieve success in a global marketplace and for Kentucky to remain a leader in education reform," Zachem continued.
 As a former judge of Ashland Oil's awards program, Moorman said, "When reading the accomplishments of teachers participating in this program, I am struck by their innovation, their dedication and their hard work. Even more than that, however, I am touched by how child-centered teachers remain throughout their careers. On behalf of Kentucky teachers and students, I commend Ashland Oil for its steadfast support of this wonderful process called education."
 Nominations were open to the general public through Feb. 14, 1992. Any certified Kentucky teacher currently teaching kindergarten through grade 12 was eligible. Ten winners in each of four states in which Ashland Oil sponsors the program -- Kentucky, Ohio, West Virginia and Minnesota -- were selected by a panel of educators. Criteria for judging included philosophy of teaching, classroom teaching innovations 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 which focus on the importance of quality education and the cooperative effort required from business and educational systems to achieve desired results.
