Retiring Education Department Spokeswoman Recalls Reforms

Dec 31, 2012

Lisa Gross earned the 2012 Kevin M. Noland Award recognizing significant service to Kentucky’s public schools and for providing inspiration for education.

Kentucky Department of Education Communications Division Director Lisa Gross retired in December. Earlier in 2012, she earned the Kevin M. Noland Award for significant service to the commonwealth’s public schools.

Gross has been responsible for KDE’s public information and media relations. For many education reporters Gross has been the “go to” person at the state level.

Before retiring, Gross joined me from her office to talk about how Kentucky education has changed over the years.
