On Tuesday, April 30, Kentucky Leads the Nation will shine its spotlight on the Hickman County Public Schools. Hickman County Superintendent Kenny Wilson and his administrators, teachers, and students will offer “how-to’s” on Hickman County’s strategies that have:
♦ Moved Hickman County from its ranking four years ago as 140th among Kentucky’s 174 school districts in the number of seniors who tested as “College and Career Ready” to third in the state in 2010 and second in 2011.
♦ Changed the district’s culture and community’s attitudes toward college and career preparation.
♦ Secured the financial support of a local philanthropist and 52 community sponsors allowing all of the district’s seniors to earn college credits at no cost to the students.
♦ Enabled 37 seniors to graduate with a total of 769 dual credit hours and 64 juniors to earn 380 dual credit hours in 2012.
