Superintendent Dr. Henry Webb congratulates our students and coaches for their performances at the Regional Science Olympiad competition held at the University of Pikeville March 4, 2017.
Dr. Webb comments, “Congratulations Betsy Layne High School and Coach Brandon Pascarella! Once again, Betsy Layne won the regional Science Olympiad competition.” Webb continued, “The board team and I also want to congratulate Prestonsburg High School and Coach Kenneth Bradley and South Floyd Middle and Coach Karen Miles. From PHS, Team Alpha placed 3rd and Team Omega placed 4th and South Floyd Middle placed 3rd. All four teams are advancing to state. Kaylie Edwards and Breanna Little from South Floyd High, coached by Candace Slone, placed 1st in their category, Rocks and Minerals. We’re very proud of our students and coaches and wish them the best of luck at state!”
Webb concluded, “We’ve had great success in Floyd County Schools and it’s because of our KIDS, our COMMUNITY and our TEAM. In the past month we’ve had middle and high school students qualify for state competition in academics, dance, archery, wrestling, vocational, poetry and now Science Olympiad. And that’s just the last month. We hope our families and community members know that we appreciate their support because they help make all this happen. Together, we are making sure that our KIDS can compete with anyone in anything at any level!”
