Metcalfe County Schools Awarded $500,000 Grant

Community Ed CenterCommunity Ed Center

Metcalfe County Schools has received a $500,000 grant from the Appalachian Regional Commission.

The federal grant will provide Metcalfe County with updated facilities for community education classes, a work force development satellite site, and a health and wellness center.

The new facility will be located in a former Edmonton Elementary School classroom unit on West Stockton Street.

“This has been a truly collaborative effort,” said Metcalfe County Schools Superintendent Dr. Benny Lile. “The BRADD office, office of Rural Development, district personnel, local officials, and certainly U.S. Congressman James Comer and State Representative Bart Rowland have all been instrumental in this day coming to fruition.”

Chris Huffman, director of Special Services, said, “This is a culmination of a three year effort. Anything that involves federal dollars has a number of safeguards and requirements. We understand and appreciate the due diligence and procedures, but it does make for a long process. In the end, we are all just glad it worked out.”

Dr. Lile said, “Our vision for this campus is to utilize existing facilities and bring added value to our community and all the citizens of Metcalfe County.”

District officials anticipate an opening in the summer of 2018.

MCES Students Enjoy Fall Day with Hayride to Corn Maze


MCES students enjoyed a beautiful fall day with hayrides to the corn maze on Friday, Oct. 20. The hayride took students from the elementary school to the cornfield just below the high school. MCHS FFA students then guided the children through the maze. They stopped at several checkpoints throughout the maze to learn about corn, farming, and the economy. After exiting the maze, students were treated to apples grown at Metcalfe County's Valley View Orchard. They also got to take pumpkin-spiced muffins back to their classrooms thanks to the UK 4-H Extension Office. The hayrides and corn maze provided the students with a day of fun and education while also supporting the district's Farm to School program. Click here to see more photos from the day including Dr. Lile and Mrs. Bell driving the tractors!
