WKU SPAN Chemistry Class - Distillation Lab

ChemistryChemistry

When the water is so contaminated that you cannot drink it, what could you do to get a pure glass of H2O? Students taking Western Kentucky University (WKU) Dual-Credit “SPAN Chemistry” class at Metcalfe County High School (MCHS) completed a lab investigation of the distillation of contaminated water. In this lab students tested the given contaminated (hard water) for the ions present in the water prior to the distillation, and then after the distillate (pure water) was collected, the same procedures were followed to prove the absence of the hard water contaminates. SPAN Chemistry is so called because this dual-credit class spans the gap between high school and the extremely rigorous college chemistry expectations.

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.
