Thom along with six other educators was honored at a ceremony held on October 4, at the University of Pikeville.
When I received the call that I was being inducted into the University of Pikeville Distinguished Educators Hall of Fame, I was absolutely speechless. For anyone to recognize the work that I do to nominate me was humbling in itself, but to be selected for this Hall of Fame is an incredible honor. I am so appreciative of the University of Pikeville for holding Educators in such high regard, and I’m very grateful to be part of the Distinguished Educators Hall of Fame.Thom Cochran
