McCracken County High School Opens
McCracken County Public Schools held a ceremonial ribbon cutting for its new high school Thursday.
After seven years of planning and two and a half years of construction, public school superintendent Nancy Waldrop revealed McCracken County High School to the public and discussed some of the school’s priorities.
She says the home of the Mustangs offers students with the opportunity to complete up to two years of college before graduating with 30 dual credit options and 26 Advanced Placement classes. Waldrop added that students could establish a career as a nurse aid, EMT, broadcaster and several other trades before graduating or could prepare for university studies in subjects such as engineering, business and fine arts.
But Waldrop says even though the building is finished, the work of educating students is just beginning.
