Lyndon High School Principal Brad Marcotte announced Monday that Culley had received the award, noting she had demonstrated the characteristics necessary to receive this annual award given in honor of one of Kansas’ educational leaders.

“Madison is a fantastic young adult who will achieve great heights,” Marcotte said. “She is a hard-worker, great leader and a genuine person. We wish her the best at college.”

Madison, the daughter of Kevin and Sharon Culley, will be attending Coffeyville Community College to study horticulture, with plans to transfer to Kansas State University.

Recipients of the Dale M. Dennis Excellence in Education Award are identified in high schools throughout the state as those who have displayed citizenship, community and school service, scholarship, and common sense characteristics that make them a quality individual.

The Dale M. Dennis Excellence in Education Award was established in 1996 by Kansas school administrators to honor the long and valuable service that Dennis has provided to Kansas education. The individual attributes that characterize Dennis as a friend of education, and more importantly as a first class citizen, are the basis for determining the recipient of this award. Dennis is the deputy commissioner of the Kansas State Department of Education.
