Twenty environmental educators from across the state graduated from the Kentucky Environmental Education Council’s Professional Environmental Educator Certification program June 3 at a ceremony at the Capitol Rotunda in Frankfort.

KEEC, an agency within the Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet, is one of three national certification programs accredited by the North American Association for Environmental Education.

The newly certified professional environmental educators completed the state’s rigorous PEEC course that was conducted from October to May.

Among the 20 people recognized as Certified Professional Environmental Educators were Delaney Rockrohr-Eaton of Warren County.

The PEEC course, now with 233 graduates since the program was launched in 2004, is based on national guidelines designed to professionalize the field of environmental education by standardizing best practices.
