Adair County Judge Executive Gale Cowan

Columbia Mayor Pamela Hoots

Welcome to Adair County! We are home to almost 20,000 residents and happy to have you if you are just passing through or if you are considering locating here. We are home to Green River Lake and Holmes Bend Marina and only a short distance to Lake Cumberland and Dale Hollow State Parks. Located in south central Kentucky, the Louie B. Nunn Parkway runs through Adair County and we are situated directly between I-65 and I-75. We are also in the process of completing the Heartland Parkway, which will connect us to the Bluegrass Parkway. We are within two hours of Louisville, Lexington, and the capital of our commonwealth, Frankfort, Kentucky. Our proximity puts us in a prime location for economic growth and development. At the same time, we have the principles and work ethic of the small, rural community we are. We have seen tremendous growth over the last few years. Not only is our hospital growing by leaps and bounds after being purchased by T.J. Regional Health, but we have also seen the First Choice Immediate Care open its doors and become a major asset to our community. Our school campus is one of the most beautiful in the state. Our high school offers state of the art nursing and welding programs so our students are career ready when they graduate. If you are passing through, we hope you enjoy your stay here. If you are looking for a place to relocate, we would be glad to have you here in our beautiful county. I think you will find the residents of Adair County friendly and welcoming.

Welcome to Columbia, our hometown. We are proud of our historical significance, our downtown shopping district, and the wonderful people that make up our community. Columbia is located in south central Kentucky and has access from two exit ramps of the Louie B. Nunn Cumberland Parkway, named after the former Kentucky governor who was from nearby Barren County. As a rural community, we are extremely excited about the opportunities being given by the technical services at the local Adair County High School. Their welding and farming programs are second to none. Lindsey Wilson College is located just off of the public square. The college is known for their premier sports programs and commitment to the students in our community that want to further their education. We as a community are working to improve our parks systems for children and families. We realize that recreational opportunities are important for the future health of our residents as well as important for the recruitment of economic development. We have several events through the year, and last year we held an event called, “Truck It Up,” a food truck festival that brought people from throughout the area into our town to raise funds for our city park equipment. We are 219 years old. It is hard to believe. But, our assets as a community continue to be the same. We have a beautiful downtown area filled with history, our friends and neighbors are friendly and glad to lend a hand; and most of all we have pride in our community and our downtown. The country music band, Montgomery Gentry, is from Boyle County, less than an hour away, and they are known for their song, “My Town.” As the lyrics say, “where I was born, where I was raised, where I keep all my yesterdays.” Today, I invite you to visit my hometown, walk around the square, visit the shops (shop local), and just “sit a spell.” You’ll be glad you did. If you like, come by my office and we can talk and visit.

Stretching across 8,200 acres is one of Adair County’s most popular spots – Green River Lake. This body of water was formed when the Army Corps of Engineers constructed a dam in 1964 and is home to bass, bluegill, catfish and crappie. Along the 1,331 acres of land surrounding the lake is the Green River Lake State Park, which opened in 1969. Holmes Bend Marina Resort in Adair County is known as the lake’s premier marina, featuring a beach, cabins, houseboat and fishing boat rentals, and picnic area, and is located near private and Corps of Engineers campgrounds. A lodge provides rentals for suites and meeting rooms. The marina also hosts a restaurant and gift shop with lake essentials. Fishing, trail hiking, and an array of summer fun await visitors at Green River Lake and Holmes Bend Marina Resort.

Kayaking on Russell Creek has become a popular outdoor activity for local residents and visitors alike. Russell Creek begins in northern Russell County and flows west-northwest, passing through the city of Columbia and dumping into Green River south of Greensburg. Russell Creek offers a number of public access sites and the City of Columbia is working to improve access points as part of the Trail Town program. Floating or wading Russell Creek are popular fishing activities and the creek offers an array of smallmouth bass, rock bass and spotted bass. Creek.aspx

There are so many ways to have fun on Green River Lake. Visitors can rent pontoons, fishing boats and houseboats at Holmes Bend Marina and Resort. Kayakers can be seen enjoying the view as they journey along the lake. For local residents or visitors who don’t want to roam far from the bank, however, there is plenty of access to fishing and swimming at Green River Lake in Adair County.

We love to celebrate! Adair County is home to a number of popular annual events, and after a year of closures and a pandemic, we are back on schedule!

Downtown Days Perhaps the most popular and most anxiously awaited day of the year in Columbia is the second Saturday of October, when downtown Columbia comes to life with concerts, children’s activities, a food court, booths and arts and crafts. The full day of festivities culminates with a free music concert on the public square that has featured nationally known recording artists such as Earl Thomas Conley, Trick Pony, Diamond Rio and Sammy Kershaw. The historic downtown courthouse is surrounded with plenty of fun for the entire family.

Revisit Knifley Knifley is not the town seat of Adair County, but it certainly is part of the heart of the county. The small community in northern Adair usually reunites on the second Saturday of September, bringing together local residents as well as hosting as a family reunion for Knifley natives who have moved away. The event has been canceled this year due to scheduling conflicts but a car show will be held. Event planners expect to bring Revisit back in full force for 2022. 12

Parks offer walking trails, playgrounds and more Brand new basketball courts at the Jim Blair Community Recreation Center draw young and old alike to shoot some hoops. The park is owned by the Adair County Fiscal Court and serves the community in a multitude of ways. Located at 901 Hudson St., an outdoor walking track is a common place that locals visit for exercise and to take in nature. A children’s playground is one of the largest in the county, a softball field can host community softball leagues, and the picnic shelter overlooks it all. Indoors, a portion of the facility is home to the Adair County Senior Center. The majority of the facility includes a basketball court, which recently received a new hardwood floor. That portion of the facility is available for rent for events such as birthday parties. The Columbia City Park has been under constant updates in the last year. The park’s playground now holds handicap accessible equipment after the community came together to fund raise for the project. Its basketball court, picnic area and restrooms have undergone new paint and maintenance. A nearby pavilion serves as a great place for barbecues and family reunions. A children’s splash pad is proposed as part of several improvements planned at the park, which is located on Fairground Street. 16

Land prices attract newcomers, growth Adair County property values continue to increase as the community enjoys economic growth and new housing development. Adair County has 14,000 individual parcels of land and a total tax base of $750 million. We are the 32nd largest county in the state by land area with a total of 405.28 square miles. The average cost for a home in Adair County is 53 percent lower than the national average. The average price for a family style home with 1,000 to 2,000 square feet is $90,000 to $200,000. The average for homes 2,000 square feet and above is $200,000 to $750,000. The price of a building lot has also increased in the last two years, and is dependent on location. For instance, a lot in the lake area regularly sells for $15,000 to $25,000. Building lots throughout the county have also increased to around $1,500 to $10,000 per lot. Farms have also increased in value to an average of $1,200 to $8,000 per acre, depending on location and terrain. Commercial sales are consistent with 2020 prices, while the cost to build per square foot has increased drastically.

The price of construction materials has climbed substantially in the last couple years. The National Association of Home Builders says lumber price increases have added $36,000 to the average cost of a new home since April 2020. This hasn’t curbed building in the county as we have many new construction projects in progress at this time. Kentucky has experienced home appreciation rates above the national average over the last five years. Property taxes in Kentucky are some of the lowest in the country and many people are taking advantage of this by moving into the state. Commercial lots at the Pinewood Shopping Center are being recorded as some of the highest land sales the county has ever seen. Lots in this area range from $50,000 to $375,000 per acre, depending on location and adjoining landowners. The lake area of the county continues to be a hot spot for prospective buyers. Adair County’s population continues to grow at a rate of about 3 percent per year. This marks the greatest number of home ownership in our county’s history. Data from Adair County PVA’s office.

A historic property in the center of Columbia is the Trabue-Russell House, the former home of one of Columbia’s founders, Daniel Trabue. He built his home to overlook the town square in 1823. It was later purchased by James Montgomery Russell. Today, it preserves the history of Adair County as a museum. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was featured on Tour120, a heritage program that raises awareness of historic preservation in Kentucky. It is owned by the City of Columbia and is available for private or community events. Beautiful greenery, flowers and views can be observed outside the home, which are tended to by the Adair County Garden Club. A rose garden is cared for in memory of Julia Miller Horton, the great-granddaughter of James Russell. Call the City of Columbia for tours or rental. 270-384-2501.

History fills pages at new research center

Columbia has become a well-known haven for genealogical researchers, striving to find nuggets of information on family members from Adair County, but also from around the state. The Adair County Public Library opened the state-of-the-art Genealogy and History Research Center earlier this year. People come from all over the country to dig into their family’s background. “It is kind of different for everyone, but I get excited when I find additional information or find a missing piece to the puzzle,” said Sarah Flickinger, of Overland Park, Kansas. Her family moved to Adair County in the 1850s and she travels to Columbia to do research at least once a year. “You have to be able to analyze and be persistent. I don’t always take the first sliver of information I find. I always look for more documentation to back things up. It is never finished. There is always a brick wall. When you get to a certain time period in your family tree it is difficult to get information.” Flickinger said the research center at the library is a gold mine. “What they do at the genealogy research center is phenomenal for the area,” said Flickinger. “Their services are so underrated, yet so important to the community. It is more than genealogical information, it is history and that is so important. “I don’t think people understand the benefit and the wealth of knowledge inside the genealogy and history center. The hard work they put in on what they do for people is so priceless.” The new facility was constructed adjacent to the library and is located at 307 Greensburg Street. Reach the center at 270-380-1024 or email Hours are 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. - noon on Saturday.

It’s our people... It’s no secret, Columbia is a great place to call home because of our people. Our people are giving and are known for stepping up and helping one another in times of need. We offer a temporary shelter funded locally for members of our community and travelers in need of temporary housing, and J.O.Y. Ministries and other organizations and local churches are always reaching out to people who have had temporary setbacks or are working toward building a better life. We have a great sense of community, from local sports to annual events, but it’s always about our people. Family gatherings, community functions, loving our neighbors...that’s what makes Columbia a great place to call home.

Animals find forever home through shelter Strays have a place to stay until they find their forever home at the Green River Animal Shelter. Several hundred animals are adopted by loving families each year through the shelter, which is owned by the county government. When Tammy Campbell took over operating the shelter, everyone knew there was a new boss at the helm. No animal that could be homed would be left behind. She and her staff have developed relationships across the country in an effort to make sure the dogs and cats turned over to them get the best outcome possible. The shelter gladly welcomes donations from the community, such as food and cleaning supplies. The most needed items are pet food, leashes and collars, dish soap, Lysol and bleach. The Green River Animal Shelter is located at 455 Appleby Dr. in Columbia. Hours and days of operation are Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The shelter’s phone number is 270-385-9655.

New entrance, central location make Green River Commerce Park an ideal spot for new industry The perfect home stands ready for development of new industry in a convenient location, and access will be better than ever in 2021. The 300-acre Green River Commerce Park is located 4.6 miles from the Louie B. Nunn Cumberland Expressway and its development is the main focus of the Economic Development Authority. EDA has added a number of improvements in recent years, including an expansion of the sewer system and extending the current roadway. The park already has access to natural gas, water and electricity. An exciting new expansion is taking place that makes the park even more appealing to prospective companies. A new road entrance is being developed to the south side of the park, opening up access to 144 acres from the second park entrance. “When this new road is complete, we will have two entrances, which will improve the park and improve traffic as the property develops. There are a lot of advantages to getting this new road. It is like manna from heaven,” said Bobby Morrison, EDA board chairman. EDA works closely with the city and county to welcome potential clients for the park or any other location that might be fitting. Adair County has a lot to offer, including the recognition as a Work Ready Community. The community also has a relationship in place with a workforce center that offers training in transportation, advanced manufacturing, health science, technology, and construction trades. The center is also equipped to customize a training program in coordination with a local industry. While access to the Green River Commerce Park is already great and getting even better, its close access to the Louie B. Nunn Cumberland Expressway is certainly a bonus. The highway, which links Somerset (close to I-75 in eastern Kentucky) to Interstate 65 in the west, just recently received the distinction of being an expressway. Kentucky’s legislature renamed the highway and Kentucky’s U.S. senators are working to increase federal resources for the roadway and emphasize its importance as an interstate spur. In addition, the commerce park is adjacent to Ky. 55, which is being adapted into the Heartland Parkway, extending from Columbia north to the Bluegrass Parkway in Washington County, passing through four counties. The Green River Commerce Park is a great place to locate, and with plans to improve roadways in and around the park, access in the future will be protected and improved for years to come.

An existing roadway in the Green River Commerce Park was recently extended to add access to more areas of the park. A new entrance is now under construction as the Columbia - Adair County Economic Development Authority continues to make improvements at the park. Below, EDA board chairman Bobby Morrison stands in front of the sign welcoming people to the original entrance of the park, which is located on Ky. 55 north of Columbia.

City draws food marketing company The city of Columbia has received preliminary approval for a $1 million grant toward the purchase of property it will then lease to a food service company planning to locate in the community. The city plans to purchase the former Majestic Yachts property for $1.5 million and lease it to Synergy Food Group, a Tennessee company that specializes in-store deli and food service programs. Mayor Pamela Hoots has been working on the project for several months with support from members of the Columbia City Council. They are completing the final steps necessary to receive a Community Development Block Grant for the project. The city is committing $525,000 and the company is committing $5 million toward the project, for a total project cost of $6,525,000. “I’m just excited that they are coming,” Mayor Hoots said. She said the company expects to provide 50 jobs in the beginning with plans of expanding to 300 jobs within three to five years. Synergy Food Group LLC specializes in products for foodservice at retail, K-12, senior feeding, disaster relief, and emergency response feeding. Their products include handcrafted fruit cobblers and pot pies, ready cook meat pies, frozen prepared meals, and meal kits manufactured in USDA/FDA and GFSI certified production facilities. Their family of brands include EduKitch-

ens, PantryPax, New Food Innovations, Good-N-Easy, Speed Scratch, SilverServing as well as private label. Synergy Food Group is owned and operated by Greg and Barry Durrett. During a telephone interview in February, Greg Durrett said he started the company in 2013. “The company has been supplying handcrafted products to grocery store delis around the Southeast,” Durrett said. “When Covid came along, we were asked if we could supply frozen meals, which we can, and that expanded into meal kits, both frozen and shelf stable.” Durrett said they want to come to Columbia because they have outgrown their facilities, some of which they own and operate and others with which they contract. “We are excited about the opportunity to come to Columbia. We hope everything works out. We want it to work out and we want to employ a lot of people,” Durrett said. The Majestic Yachts property, located at 100 Westwood Way at the intersection of Burkesville Road and the bypass, is a 10-acre property that includes 32,000 sq. ft. under roof with several offices as well as two high-ceiling garage areas.

KFC will be opening soon in the Holladay Place Shopping Center. In the background to the right, First and Farmers National Bank’s new building is under construction.

New growth built on strong foundation

Virginia Outfitters, corner of Tutt and Jamestown streets

A trip around the public square and highways leading into downtown can reap a shopper an array of clothing, home décor, musical instruments and great consignment shop finds. It’s all there in commercial areas of Columbia that have been around for generations. The shops have changed over time, but in recent years a growing trend of locally owned boutique shops has added new life to the long-established commercial area of Columbia. On Jamestown Street (exit 49 on the Louie B. Nunn Cumberland Expressway), new food options include a newly opened Dairy Queen and a Cook Out, which is currently under construction. Columbia doesn’t stop there, however, and new growth continues to extend the city limits and expand commercial opportunities. Locally nicknamed “New Columbia,” shopping centers just off the Louie B. Nunn Cumberland Expressway exit 46 continue to grow, with a new KFC scheduled to open soon and a new main office for First and Farmers National Bank now under construction. Columbia’s retail and service communities continue to thrive and continue to grow. That’s because the new growth is being built on a solid foundation.

Students excel in diverse ag education program The agriculture education program at Adair County High School is considered by some to be one of the top programs in the area as local students are traditionally recognized at the state level. A big portion of the program is the FFA, coordinated by Kirby Hancock and Brittany Smith. “Traditionally, especially in our area, people associate FFA with farming. A lot of our population today may not be planning on farming for a career,” said Smith. “At the same time, there is so much the FFA can offer to all kids, not just those that grew up on a farm or plan to farm for a career. “We will always have a spot for those students but also, at the same time, for that student that is planning on being a doctor. We can explore technology and the systems of life with animals, how they all work and the science behind that, which can help them in any field.” The Adair County program is well known for its facilities. Students can learn in the livestock barn, in a shop setting, and the greenhouse. There is also a large, supportive alumni and volunteer organization that is a big part of agriculture education at ACHS.

“We also have a thick tradition with the Adair County FFA of kids doing well,” Smith said. “Being part of that, knowing the history, knowing the opportunities in front of the students, is all how it comes together.”

It was test plot planting day at Adair County FFA. Braeden Coomer, Tanner Strange, Bailey Grider and Noah Newell kept the planter going with different corn varieties.

AGCO brings AgRevolution dealership to Columbia Adair County is now home to a regional agriculture equipment dealership that draws customers from across central and south central Kentucky. In January, AgRevolution™ began providing agriculture equipment sales and services to farming customers in five locations across Kentucky and southern Indiana. AgRevolution is a wholly owned subsidiary of AGCO, a global leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of agricultural solutions through brands such as Challenger, Fendt, Gleaner, GSI, and Massey Ferguson. The new company is the result of AGCO’s acceptance

of an opportunity to acquire agriculture-related assets of Boyd CAT. “AGCO is committed to building and maintaining a strong nationwide dealer network. This unique situation is the result of separate strategies – Boyd’s decision to focus on its core construction business and AGCO’s commitment to continue serving customers in this area – that coincided at the right time,” said Stacy Anthony, CEO of AgRevolution. “AgRevolution’s top priority is to provide industry-best services that earn customer loyalty and our new teams and locations will ensure that customers receive dedicated and effective services designed specifically for the ag industry and farmers themselves,” Anthony said. The Adair County location may be found at 110 Boyd Dr. and is conveniently located near the Louis B. Nunn Cumberland Expressway exit 46 near the Holladay Place Shopping Center.

Farming sector plays strong role in local economy Cattle association forms junior program Agriculture continues to be the leading economic sector in Adair County and remains a viable business opportunity for the community. Adair County farmers produced $69.3 million in agriculture commodities, according to the USDA 2017 agricultural census. There are 1,816 producers involved in producing food and fiber products. More than 41,000 cattle graze the countryside of Adair County and the county ranks 15th in the state for cattle and calves and ties at fourth for dairy cattle. Adair is the second largest milk producing county in Kentucky, according to 2021 Dairy Alliance data. Beef and dairy sales both rounded out at $13.2 million, according to the latest census. The variety of agricultural commodities produced in the county has expanded in recent years. There has been an increase of poultry farms, which has become the largest source of agriculture income in Kentucky. The poultry industry experienced a $10 million increase in receipts in 2017 alone. Adair County farmers have also increased their acreage of row crops in recent years. According to 2020 crop estimates from USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service, Adair County farmers yielded 181.4 bushels per acre on 10,400 acres of corn and 56.1 bushels per acre on 10,700 acres of soybeans. Adair County farmers have been involved in state extension service testing plots. Most recently, fields in the county were tested to see if drone fungicide application is suitable for farmers and if drone application helps offset reduced yields due to disease. The Adair County agribusiness sector continues to

grow to support the local, regional and state agriculture industry. These businesses are not only essential to farmers but allow for job opportunities to our citizens. Much of Adair County’s success in agriculture can be attributed to the teamwork and camaraderie of Adair County farmers. An example of this can be seen by the Adair County Cattlemen’s Association. With nearly 300 members, the association ranks the sixth largest association in Kentucky. The association provides educational opportunities for local cattle producers and promotes the beef industry to both consumers and local leaders. The Adair County Cattlemen’s Association continues to look toward the future and just recently created the Adair County Junior Cattlemen’s Association. Nick Roy, Adair County extension agent for Agriculture and Natural Resources, said the junior program is still in its infancy but has been a top priority for the senior association for the past three or four years.

Let’s face it, farming is about family. It’s about roots, values, a relationship with the land. Love of livestock, love of watching a seed grow into a plant. It’s about sunrises and sunsets. It’s about seasons of planting and times of harvesting. Farm families must make a living. Agriculture is a business, and it’s a crucial part of the economy of Adair County. It’s far beyond a contribution to our economic strength, however. Farming preserves the beauty of our landscape, it provides food and fiber for our community and our world, and farming keeps us balanced in a world of chaos.

ADAIR COUNTY SHERIFF Elected Official: Sheriff Josh Brockman

ADAIR COUNTY PVA Elected Official: Property Valuation Administrator Landon Edwards

Adair County Sheriff Josh Brockman and his deputies provide law enforcement services across the entire county. While the department operates with a small staff, at least one deputy is on duty at all times and the goal is to have two officers available if possible. The sheriff’s department also provides prisoner transport services for the courts and provides court security. The office conducts vehicle inspections for any vehicle that has been rebuilt or purchased out of the state of Kentucky. Citizens who earn a concealed carry permit must be licensed at the sheriff’s office. The office is fee based and receives revenue from serving court papers, vehicle inspections and concealed carry licenses. In addition, the sheriff’s office sends out and collects property tax bills. Offices are located at 424 Public Square, Suite 20 (upstairs). 270-384-2776

While the Property Valuation Administrator has one major role, it impacts every landowner in Adair County. The PVA is responsible for fairly setting the property assessment for all parcels in Adair County, which is now totaling more than 14,000. While this does affect taxes, the PVA does not set the tax rates. To get the assessment they set, PVA deputies go to every area of the county once every four years and inspect all property in that area, but they do not go inside homes. A taxpayer can go to the PVA office to get an adjustment on vehicle taxes if they have changes or problems with their car. Taxpayers may also sign up for Homestead Exemption, The Homestead Exemption allows those with disability, military disability or those who are 65 or older to have $40,500 taken off their property’s assessed value, therefore lowering the property tax. Edwards provides a website at, which allows basic information for free but subscribers get access to all records in the PVA office system, which Edwards hopes to make available to the public for free in the future. The public can come to the office to get maps or printouts of property, something that Edwards says not everyone knows about. The Adair County PVA office is located at 424 Public Square, Suite 2. 270-384-3673

School district serves students K - 12 Students in Adair County are able to stay on the same campus as they advance in class levels and move from the Adair County Primary Center to the Adair County Elementary School, the Adair County Middle School and on to the Adair County High School. The school campus has grown in recent years as old buildings were taken down and new ones were added. New classrooms are also being added and a new middle school is in the works. The school district is operated with oversight from five

elected board members, who appoint the superintendent. The superintendent is Dr. Pamela Stephens and current board members are Troy Grider, chair; Destiny Greer; Terry Harvey; Dana King; and David Karnes. The Adair County Board of Education is located at 1204 Greensburg Street. 270-384-2476

Adair County Elementary School Principal Sommer Brown 3rd – 5th Grade 870 Indian Dr. 270-384-0077

Student enrollment is on the increase around the Adair County School District and those numbers may not be any more evident than at the Adair County Primary Center. Principal Debbie Bradshaw has seen her student population grow by almost 50 students to an expected 2021-22 count of 600. Bradshaw said she and her staff have been working on a lot of programs for the last three years, trying to build the school’s positive culture. She wants students and parents to know ACPC is a “joyful place” and that steps are taken each day to make students and staff as safe as possible. At the Adair County Primary Center, there is a strong focus on reading because “this is where it all starts.” Bradshaw said they’ve been working to adjust the way teachers teach to fit the needs of their students. Some of the programs include structured literacy; hands-on manipulatives, and all things are definitely age appropriate. Her goal, she said, is to have students leave ACPC as independent readers. With several national board certified teachers, Adair County Primary Center students are recognized for their accomplishments on a weekly, monthly and annual basis. “It is a year of great change,” Bradshaw said, “but change can be positive if you focus on it.”

Sommer Brown, the principal at Adair County Elementary School, is adamant about parents playing a proactive role in communicating with school officials. She said she encourages parents to never feel afraid to call and ask questions. That “all on the same team” atmosphere is part of the main focus at ACES, and that comes from the top down. Educating your child, and the rest of the some 600 students in the building, is a joint effort, and she and her staff are ready and willing to work together. The student population includes children from such places as Georgia, Washington state, Louisville, North Carolina and Johnson City, Tenn. Students are recognized for their accomplishments on a regular basis, including good efforts in academics. Those scores are measured through some of the industry’s top testing programs, including MAP testing, school intervention, Exact Path, i-Ready, Lexia, and Study Island. Brown said above all, she wants her students and their families to feel at home when they’re in the school building.

Adair County High School Principal Chad Parnell 9th – 12th Grade 526 Indian Dr. 270-384-2751

Principal Rodney Morgeson believes in excellence and that is what he strives for from himself and his staff each day at the Adair County Middle School. The school’s mission statement is “Always Challenging Middle School Students to Succeed” and that’s the focus the some 650 students will have when classes start this year. Morgeson said excellence is the expectation in all areas, including academics, attendance, extra-curricular activities, as well as on social and emotional levels. Students are recognized often for excelling in many areas of growth. There are a lot of opportunities for students to challenge themselves every day at Adair County Middle School, in and out of the classroom, as school officials strive for every student at ACMS to reach their highest potential. Parents, grandparents, and community members are welcome into the school as volunteers and partners in helping students achieve success in all areas. Morgeson said he encourages parents to become involved in the school.

Adair County High School Principal Chad Parnell has focused himself and his staff on providing students with every opportunity to be prepared for college, career and life through rigorous academic programs and 20 different career pathways. Some of those programs include agriculture, animal science, industrial maintenance, sports medicine, automotive maintenance, business management, construction carpentry, family and consumer science, allied health, computer science, computerized manufacturing, flight and aeronautics, media arts, video production, and fundamentals of teaching. That group also includes advanced, dual credit and AP coursework. Programs also exist for the some 750 students out of the classroom, including varsity sports such as football, basketball, golf, cross country, baseball, softball, tennis and swimming, just to name a few. Students are recognized regularly for their accomplishments inside the classroom and out. Academically, students have been honored as National Merit finalists, as well as athletically, as seniors traditionally are able to continue their careers at the college level. Students also have the opportunity to express their creativity through various visual and performing arts courses.

Students celebrate the graduating class of 2021.

Being a “campus town” is an honored tradition; it’s part of who we are and why we love who we are. Following a year of adjustments and sacrifices due to a pandemic, Lindsey Wilson College celebrated its graduates with outdoor commencements in May 2021. Over the span of three days and four ceremonies, including an optional virtual ceremony, Lindsey Wilson College awarded a total of 260 graduate and undergraduate degrees. Combined with the 363 degrees awarded in December at winter commencement, the Class of 2021 was a total of 624 graduates. Lindsey Wilson College has formed a number of partnerships to provide educational opportunities around the commonwealth. Programs are available for high school students who want to take college courses, and a nursing program includes a relationship with T.J. Health Columbia.

Students will remain on SCC’s campus but will have full access to LWC institutional services such as admissions, registration, advising and remote library access. LWC is the first private college to join the University Center of Southern Kentucky.

The Blue Raiders capped off a perfect 11-0 season with a 45-13 win over Northwestern (IA) in the NAIA FCS national championship game.

Dukes went 18-of-24 through the air for 157 yards while producing three rushing touchdowns on the ground. Overall, Lindsey
