NEWPORT-Newport native Dr. Robert M. Kisabeth, Jr. and the late James (Jay) Gaddis) were lauded Thursday evening as recipients of the Cocke County Education Foundation's 2012 Celebrate Our Success honorees at the Foundation's annual banquet at Carson Springs Conference Center.
Kisabeth, now a resident of Charleston, South Carolina, is an internationally known pathologist whose work has taken him to numerous countries to help establish laboratories and medical programs. He has also served on the staff of both Mayo and Cleveland Clinics.
Gaddis spent over 40 years in the education field, mostly as an administrator. After leaving his teaching position at Newport Grammar School, Gaddis moved to Morristown where he later retired as Superintendent of Schools.
He then returned to Newport and served his last years as Director of the Newport City School System.
In introducing the recipients, Dr. Rich Lloyd, who chairs the Foundation, said, "We are here to promote the value of education in Cocke County-to promote the value of things that are good."
