Monday, June 28, 2010
Several local and national organizations have recently recognized KET for contributions in the fields of Alzheimer’s prevention, literacy, public advocacy, and more.
The National Coalition for Literacy (NCL) recently announced that KET will be the recipient of a 2010 NCL Literacy Leadership Award. The Literacy Leadership Awards recognize extraordinary national contributions to improving literacy. The NCL cited KET’s Workplace Essential Skills series, which helps job seekers find and retain employment, and GED Connection, which helps students prepare for the GED exam.
The Alzheimer’s Association Greater Kentucky/Southern Indiana Chapter presented KET with their Media Partner of the Year award for providing viewers with in-depth information about the disease and participating in community events.
Also, One to One and Kentucky Tonight host Bill Goodman received the Department of Public Advocacy’s 2010 Anthony Lewis Media Award, which recognizes a member of the media who informs the public on the role public defenders play in providing counsel.
Finally, the National Friends of Public Broadcasting recently presented the Grassroots Advocacy Award to Owensboro resident G. Dan Griffith, vice chair of the KET Friends Board advocacy committee. The Friends Board is KET’s statewide network of volunteers.
