Kenton Rotary welcomed Chad Thrush, Superintendent of Kenton City Schools and Rotary Member, to present at a recent meeting.
An update on Kenton City Schools was provided starting with highlighting Kenton Elementary School for achieving Leader in Me (LiM) Lighthouse certification just a few weeks ago. This certification is evidence that KES has produced outstanding results in school and student outcomes, by implementing the LiM process with fidelity and excellence. It is also because of the extraordinary impact the school is having on staff, students, parents, and the Kenton community.
Mr. Thrush also highlighted the fact that our middle and high school administration and staff worked to organize a trip to Washington DC for the 8th grade, freshman and even sophomores this spring. KCS is proud that they were able to provide this great opportunity to our older students who were not able to go in previous years due to COVID.
Finally, an update on securing an architect and construction company for the new KCS Secondary School was provided along with the next steps including upcoming opportunities for community input.
Many of the career technical courses along with unique elective courses were explained to help everyone see the wide amount of educational choices the school provides.
