hopkinsschool 300MADISONVILLE, Ky. (6/3/14) — Hopkins County Schools graduated 456 total students from Madisonville North Hopkins High School, Hopkins County Central High School and Hopkins County Academy during last week's commencement exercises.

The 54 students from Hopkins County Academy represent a record high, according to Assistant Superintendent Deanna Ashby.

“We're excited about the initiatives going on there to deter the dropout rate,” Ashby said.

Many MNHHS and HCCHS graduates will be going on to college and received funding to that end.

“Combined between both high schools, we had over $2.5 million awarded in scholarships,” Ashby said. “Our students have worked really hard, and we're proud of them.”

Also on the Board's agenda, was the formation of bass fishing teams at MNHHS and HCCHS.

According to Ashby, the Kentucky High School Athletic Association has sanctioned competitive bass fishing for high schools in the state. Both MNHHS and HCCHS have decided to participate.

The board approved organizing the teams and hiring coaches.

The board will meet again at 12 p.m. Wednesday in a special called session to hear Superintendent Linda Zellich's presentation of the Capstone report.
