During his time leading Henry County Public Schools, Price is most proud of his interactions with students at all levels.
“By talking with students you build those vital relationships, you understand where they are coming from, you help them solve problems that are important to them,” Price said. “And working with those individuals that have truly dedicated themselves to educating the students of Henry County has made me proud to be a part of this district.”
Price said he is also pleased with the improvements to facilities that have taken place over the past few years.
"Eastern Elementary received around an $800,000 renovation that allows the school to be as state-of-the-art as possible in an aging facility. It seemed as if no one wanted to tackle installing new flooring at Campbellsburg, especially in the kitchen, due to the problems that would be encountered. However, the old carpeting was replaced and a new cafeteria flooring was installed,” Price said. “One project that will soon be underway is the replacement of the hallway flooring at the high school; unfortunately, I will not be able to follow that.”
Price has no firm plans yet for his retirement, but he did have some advice for the next superintendent.
“Base every decision you make, no matter how tough, on how it is going to affect the kids of our district, short term and long term,” Price said. “Believe in your convictions and stick by them.”
At Monday night’s Board of Education meeting, Price’s letter of retirement was accepted by board members. The Board will now embark on a superintendent search with assistance provided by the Kentucky School Board Association.
We all wish Mr. Price the very best and every happiness in his retirement!
