Cindy Hudson, the secretary at Daviess County High School in Daviess County, has been chosen as the 2013 recipient of the Kentucky Association of School Administrators’ prestigious Wanda Luttrell Office Professional Award.

Named in honor of KASA’s longtime office manager, the award has been presented annually since 1981 to a member of Kentucky’s educational support staff who has contributed significantly to the efforts of the administrative team and who exhibits resourcefulness, commitment, professionalism, and a positive attitude.

Daviess County Assistant Superintendent, Julie Clark, describes Hudson in this way, “Cindy is charged with an unimaginable number of responsibilities.  Despite bearing the weight of all these responsibilities, Mrs. Hudson always stops what she is doing when a student, a teacher, a parent, or a visitor walks into her office for help or to see the principal.”  She goes on to describe Hudson as a “…self-motivated learner whose thirst for knowledge is obvious.”

Always taking advantage of professional development opportunities and focusing on customer service and technology, it’s clear that Cindy Hudson does her part to ensure the faculty, staff and administration of Daviess County High School are meeting the needs of the students they serve.  Clark put it best when she said, “She is the heart of the office.”  And so, the Kentucky Association of School Administrators salutes Cindy Hudson for her selection as the 2013 recipient of the Wanda Luttrell Office Professional Award.

Hudson was surprised on Tuesday by a visit from KASA officials who presented her with the award and a check for $500.  KASA will also recognize Hudson during the 45th Annual KASA Leadership Institute and Expo, which will be held July 17-19 at the Galt House Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky.
