News from the Adair County School District

The 2015 Adair County Career and Technical Showcase could not have been a bigger success. There were over 225 people in attendance from all walks of life. The evening started with remarks from student leader Sarah Bault, who ran the evenings opening and overview of programs. Mr. Young, Adair County High School Principal, provided a heartfelt welcome and the pride for his school and staff was unmistakable.


Next, Sarah gave the floor to Alan Reed, Superintendent of Adair County Schools. Mr. Reed thanked all those who had helped make the new Lake Cumberland Technical School Satellite Campus a reality. And noted that since the creation of the Satellite Campus, ACHS had gone from having 5 to 6 students in welding in Russell County and about the same number in Health Services to over 100 students in each program at ACHS with waiting list for both programs.

Different staff spoke about new Career Pathways coming in August of this year. Michael Godsey and Matt Willis discussed the new Aerospace Pathway, while Vickie Leibeck gave highlights of the new Broadcast Journalism Program. Then, Heather Spoon discussed the Energy Academy which has been in place since 2007 but Mrs. Spoon was excited to announce that students can now go directly into a 4 year program at Lindsey Wilson College. It is truly an exciting time to be a part of the Adair County High School.

Lastly, Sarah introduced students from each of the six Career and Technical Education programs. Each student gave a brief overview of their department which include Agriculture, Business, Family and Consumer Sciences, Health Sciences, Information Technology, and Welding. Sarah closed the overviews by inviting everyone to enjoy the refreshments provided and tour the building. All areas were visited, but the new Lake Cumberland Technical School Satellite Campus received the most attention. Teacher Barney Taylor, was without question, on cloud 9. As were his students. The Bank of Columbia recently donated a forklift for the program and it was on display along with all the new equipment students have at their disposal. Our District would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took time out of their evening to come out and see all the great things going on at Adair County High School. We hope everyone that attended is as proud as we are of not only the school but our students.
