Kenton School District Welcomes Two Exchange Students for New School Year

Written by on August 16, 2022

The Kenton City Schools Board of Education took care of several items in preparation for the start of a new school year at the August Meeting held Monday evening.

Treasurer Jill Smith gave a brief update on income tax received by the district, “We received our school income tax in at the end of July, and from this time last year we’re up about 25%, which means about $183,000 from what we received from this time last year.”

Superintendent Chad Thrush stated that he was excited to welcome back exchange students to the district, “Obviously we don’t have a ton of diversity within our school, so anything we can do to expose our kids to different cultures and different ideas I think is a positive, so I’m really excited to finally get some exchange students back into our high school.”

The Board then approved Iwen Muller from France and Natalia Kaminska from Poland as exchange students for the 2022/23 school year, which starts August 24.

Several routine personnel items were also approved, including the written resignation of Nicholas Stuck as High School Science Teacher. He was recently hired as a principal at Ridgemont.

The Board then went into Executive Session to discuss details of security arrangements and emergency response protocols. No action was taken afterward.

The next regular meeting will be held on September 19.
