Golda Walbert joins Kentucky Teacher Hall of Fame



One of those looking on Thursday was her nephew, David Pensol, who appropriately is Superintendent of Rockcastle County Schools, the county where Walbert was born and where her teaching career began.

Walbert received her associate degree from Lees Junior College, bachelor’s degree in Education in 1946 from Eastern Kentucky University and master’s degree in Educational Administration in 1950 from EKU. Her awards include the Outstanding Alumnus Award from Eastern Kentucky University, Glasgow-Barren County Chamber of Commerce Athena Award, Barren County Schools Hall of Distinguished Alumni, and the Kentucky Unbridled Spirit Award in 2007.

Also honored as Hall of Fame inductees Thursday were Debra Burgess of Murray and Cynthia S. Wood of Kenton County.
