Pattison Award

Lee S. Pattison portrait


Lee S. Pattison

In December 2007, Cincinnati Country Day School lost one of its most legendary teachers, Lee S. Pattison, who graced our campus from 1946 to 1988. We celebrate his legacy in many ways. Nearly every student who attended CCDS during his tenure has a “Mr. Pat” story — a tale of kindness or counsel, of laughter or leadership.

Rob and Amy stand together after winning the Pattison Award.


The Award

First granted in 1989, the Lee S. Pattison Distinguished Teacher Award seeks to celebrate teachers who best embody all that Lee Pattison gave, day in and day out: loyalty, creativity, humor, flexibility, and integrity.
