Clifford inducted into the University of Kentucky School of Human Environmental Sciences Hall of Fame

Joyce Crupper Clifford was one of two former educators to be inducted into the University of Kentucky School of Human Environmental Sciences Hall of Fame, along with Helen Anderson Shaw, a Lexington native, were honored for their years of dedication to the betterment of their professions, local communities and the school during a recognition ceremony at 3:30 p.m. Friday, October 19 at the Hilary J. Boone Center on UK’s campus.

"This year we honor Dr. Helen Shaw and Joyce Clifford. Both have made significant contributions within the field of education—Dr. Shaw within higher education and Ms. Clifford in secondary education," said Ann Vail, director of the school, which is part of the UK College of Agriculture. "They are examples of the breadth of impact someone in our field can have. They are inspiring role models for our students and alumni."

Clifford, an Owen County native, received her bachelor’s in vocational home economics education from UK in 1959.

In 1967, she began teaching home economics at Harrison County High School. She also served as department chairperson for the high school’s vocational programs.
