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, including the Lee S. Pattison Distinguished Teacher Award, given to one or two outstanding faculty members each year. Nearly every student who attended CCDS during his tenure has a “Mr. Pat” story — a tale of kindness or counsel, of laughter or leadership.
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.
Teachers nominate their peers by reflecting in writing how their nominees demonstrate each of the qualifying characteristics. A committee of administrators and alumni reviews the nominations and determines the winners. The winners are announced at the final faculty meeting of the year in early June. Winners receive a $10,000 stipend spread over three years, and an additional $1,000 to spend for the benefit for the school.
Nominate a faculty member for the award.
