The Kenton City Schools Board of Education met Monday evening.
Deb Purcell, from Ohio Hi-Point began by saying she will be forever grateful to outgoing superintendent Dr. Jennifer Penczarski for bringing Career Tech Ed to Kenton.
Purcell said Career Tech Ed gives students a choice especially if college is not in their future, “We need to help students see that there are other options, and I think by us bringing Career Tech Ed here to Kenton, that was a big step in helping those students see that they have a choice if college is not for them.”
Several personnel matters were taken care of by the board on what was Penczarski’s final regular meeting as superintendent.
The Board presented her with a plaque thanking her for her years of service.
Dr. Penczarski said she has really enjoyed working for and serving the Kenton School District.
She said she is excited to watch what is happening at Kenton under new Superintendent Chad Thrush’s guidance, “I’m excited to watch what’s going to happen I guess, so I’m super excited for Chad (Thrush) and his team and this board, and the future of Kenton City Schools, so thank you.”
A virtual special meeting for the purpose of hiring has been scheduled for June 30. The next regular meeting of the Board of Education will be held July 12.
