2014-03-21 - 1204 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY - Photo CM photo. Heather Spoon Energy Career Technology Academy, presented a proposal for funding for 15 selected Adair County High School juniors and seniors to take dual credit courses at Lindsey Wilson College in the 2014-2015. Under the plan, the Adair County Board of Education will pay the tuition of 3 hours at Lindsey Wilson at $60 per college hour. The students will be bussed to Lindsey Wilson. Ms. Spoon will teach one three hour class, Doug Keaton the other. The courses will be part of a new pilot program Energy Career Technology Pathway for Kentucky being developed by Spoon with Dr. John Thompson of the Kentucky Department of Education. Students who take both classes will be able to earn 6 college hours as well as high school credit. Spoon said, after the meeting, that there will be no trouble finding students who will qualify for the opportunity. Her proposal was unanimously adopted, with Chairman Floyd Burton (Div 4), and members Greg Willis (1), Quin Lasley (2), Joseph Payne (4) and Mike Harris (5) voting for the proposal.
