For more than 30 years, individuals with special needs have been close to Diana Bennett’s heart.
She taught special education in Hardin County Schools from 1975 to 2010.
Before beginning her teaching career she attended Western Kentucky University and worked as a teacher’s aid in special education. It intrigued her. There was something interesting and different about the class and the students drew her in, Bennett said.
“Special education has always been where my heart is,” she said.
