| Blythe is ''Outstanding'' Says UK
In celebration of its 40th year, the University of Kentucky's College of Health Sciences has recognized 40 outstanding alumni, one of whom is Dr. Janice Blythe, associate provost for advising and academic success at Berea.
These outstanding alumni were nominated by their fellow alumni, family, friends and faculty for their contributions to their disciplines and their support and leadership in allied health.
In 1976, Blythe began her teaching career at EKU where she received tenure and taught in the dietetics undergraduate and graduate degree program. In 1986 she accepted the position of department chair in the department of child and family studies at Berea College. She served in that capacity for twelve years.
She holds the rank of full professor and has received several honors and recognitions for excellence in teaching and academic advising, including the Paul C. Hager Award for Excellence in Advising that was awarded to her during Berea's 2004 commencement.
Within the community she serves in several organizations addressing food security and other needs of children and families, and is an officer in the Richmond-Madison County Chapter of the NAACP.
