Always great to see Jon Akers, the fellow that I consider to be the “Godfather” of school safety in KY as he continues to lead the KY Center for School Safety. He’s been a part of public education for over 40 years and I’ve been fortunate to work with him several times.

Fortunate to be in Lexington today with several colleagues for the 13th annual KSBA Federal and State Law Update. KSBA always tends to have organized, quality information to share.

Mr. Hall was gracious and here tonight to pass the baton on to Mrs. Fox as our new Band Director. She’s already familiar with many of our kids and will do a super job!

I just learned a short time ago when I returned from Lexington for the state track championship that tonight at 7pm in the band room there will be a meet and greet for our new Band Director Jennifer Wigderson-Fox. I know it is short notice but if you have a chance please stop by.

Last pic of the day from the state track meet... selfie with our 7th place in the state finisher Tyler Weir. Great athlete and even better person... what it’s all about. He’s going on to the next chapter and will do great things. Once a Panther always a Panther!

Tyler W in the 300 meter hurdles.. #7 in state! Check out the video below of him in the 300 hurdles. He represented us well and we are proud of him! As you can see there were some adverse conditions.... extremely wet. Well done Tyler! Thank you for your super effort!

Glad to be here at UK to see Tyler W compete in the state track championships. He’ll be coming up in 110 hurdles here in just a minute. Stay tuned. I have some anxious DS coaches and supporters here waiting.

There are generally a handful of true community and school legends every place you go. Our Band Director Andy Hall is one in Dawson Springs. After 30 years directing bands he is retiring. He’s impacted thousands of kids. Thanks Mr. Hall, you’ll be missed. See him in action below.

It’s a great day to be a Panther as our elementary students are recognized for their hard work and accomplishments this school year. Many students, teachers, and all staff have worked exceptionally hard. Thanks to all those parents and other supporters who came to visit today.
