Adair School campus reeling from news of cycling accident

By Supt. Alan W. Reed, Adair County School District

Below is the letter I sent our faculty and staff last night around 11pmCT, Louisville time. This morning our school district remains in a state of shock and deep concern. It will be a hard day for students, faculty and staff:

To all:

This afternoon our faculty and staff was shocked and saddened by the news of Mr. Michael Godsey's serious accident.

I, along with some others from our school district, drove to U of L Hospital to support the family. Their church family and relatives are here as well.

The family is deeply moved by the outpouring of love from all you, their school family.

The situation remains serious and the family is solid in their faith.

For now the family requests continued prayers. It could be sometime before a clearer picture emerges.

I am sure information will be shared as it becomes available.

This incident serves as another reminder about the fragile nature of life.

It is nearly 11pm here, and we will leave soon to give the family privacy. Again, they have lots of support.

Tonight we are all reminded to hold those we love close. Be sure to remind them you love them and appreciate them.


Alan W. Reed, Superintendent
Adair County Schools, 1204 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY

Adair School District holds popular teacher in hearts & prayers

2015-03-25 - Adair County High School, 526 Indian Drive, Columbia KY - Photo submitted by Alan Reed, Superintendent.
Our campus is in shock today and in prayer for the quick recover of Mr. Michael Godsey, a very popular teacher at Adair County High School, who was injured in a bicycle/car collision yesterday. Mr. Godsey does it all - he is a great teacher, an avid cyclist, and has a bright future ahead, we know. The District loves and needs him back, soon. He is in our prayers. - ALAN REED, Superintendent, Adair County Schools
