VERSAILLES, Ky. — The Floyd County school system is now looking for a new superintendent.
On Tuesday, former Floyd County Supt. Danny Adkins was hired as the new superintendent of Woodford County Schools. Following his hiring, he immediately took the helm of his first board meeting in his new district.
“I’m honored to have the opportunity to work in such a great tradition-rich district like Woodford County,” Adkins said. “I’m looking forward to being a part of the Woodford County community.”
Adkins has been an educator for more than 26 years and has served in various roles, including bus driver, coach and teacher before moving into an administrative role. He began his teaching career at Millard School in Pike County in 1995 and taught middle and high school for nearly 20 years. In 2014, he became principal of Kimper Elementary School, also in Pike County.
He was selected out of a field of 19 applicants.
“We are confident that Mr. Adkins has the leadership skills and the experience necessary to lead Woodford County Schools into the future,” Woodford County Board Chair Dani Bradley said. “We are excited to welcome him to Woodford County. We would like to thank all of the community members and staff who provided feedback throughout the search process.”
He officially steps into his new role on July 1.
