No surprise to the teachers, students, parents and staff of Woodfill Elementary, Principal Keith Faust received a Global Leadership award for the work he has done to make his school culture one of learning, respect and leadership.

At its November meeting, the Fort Thomas school board honored Faust with the award after he was nominated by a visitor to the school, an educator who served recently as a substitute in Woodfill’s counseling department.

Karen Strong, a retired classroom teacher, principal and Northern Kentucky University educator said she was privileged to do her second stint at Woodfill as a substitute and wanted to share her thoughts with the Fort Thomas school community.

In her nomination letter, she shared praise for both Principal Faust and for the school. "This is the second time I’ve spent extended time at Woodfill Elementary working for Keith Faust. It would be remiss of me not to share my reflections. After my first experience five years ago, I was so impressed with the building culture, the research-based standards and instructional practices, inclusiveness and the maximizing of staff potential. Fast-forward five years, and this amazing school has reached new heights."

To Strong, Woodfill’s principal, teachers, staff and students model all the characteristics outlined in Portrait of a Graduate and the Global Leadership effort. "I am most struck by the kindness, consideration and respect that is demonstrated among and between staff and students. This school exemplifies a community of learners. The staff and students have embraced Covey’s seven habits. These skills for living and learning should very much impact their entire lives," she said.

Superintendent Karen Cheser congratulated and thanked Faust and the entire Woodfill community. She reminded those present that anyone can nominate or be nominated for a Global Leader Award.
