Superintendent Danny Adkins is excited to announce how Floyd County Schools’ students performed at the KAAC State Governor’s Cup held this past weekend in Louisville.


Adkins comments, “Congratulations Kade Scott from Floyd Central High! This outstanding young man, who happens to be a sophomore, is the State Runner Up in General Knowledge for the high school division. Kade also placed 7th in Kentucky in Arts & Humanities!”


In looking at team results Adkins comments, “We’re so proud of Duff-Allen Central Elementary’s Community Problem Solving Team, Essentials for Santa! This team is the State Middle School Runner Up! South Floyd Elementary’s team, Clean Up Left Beaver, placed 3rd! We are so proud of these teams for their performance at competition but we’re more proud of these students trying to solve very real problems in our communities.”


Adkins commenting on other individual students who tested, “Our other students did not make the top ten, but we have several who ranked in the top forty in Kentucky. In Composition, Kaitlyn Hager (8th grade) from Adams Middle ranked 12th and from Duff-Allen Central Elementary, McKinley Martin (8th grade) ranked 17th and J.D. McKinney (8th grade) ranked 22nd. At the high school level in composition, Tabitha Mitchell (sophomore) from Prestonsburg High ranked 28th.  In Social Studies, Jada Reynolds (7th grade) from Allen Elementary ranked 34th in the middle school division and Preston Crase (sophomore) from Floyd Central High ranked 38th in the high school division. Lindsay Caudill (sophomore) ranked 28th in Language Arts.”


“We also want to congratulate Sara Springer (6th grade), Brock Horne (6th grade), Mason Buck (7th grade), Alex Begley (8th) and Brody Buck (8th grade)! These students performed admirably and will most definitely be back in state competition next year,” Adkins says. “This year we had more students in state academic competition than we’ve had in at least a decade. Our academic teams are growing and getting stronger, and our students are stepping out more and more to do something about concerns in their community. The board members and I are beyond proud of them and can’t wait to see what they will do next year!”


Concluding his comments, Adkins says, “Lastly, I want to thank our coaches, parents and community members for supporting these outstanding students and teams. Without you, we would not have so many students who are competitive at the state level in academics. Thank you for helping them have this opportunity.”
