GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - Graves County Schools’ Assistant Superintendent Kim Harrison has hired Amanda Henson to assume the role Harrison is leaving as the district’s “supervisor of elementary instruction” when Harrison officially becomes the district’s superintendent July 1.
“Some other, very qualified candidates made the decision a difficult one, but ultimately Amanda Henson kept coming to the forefront in the selection process,” Harrison said. “She has dedicated herself so much to instruction, curriculum, and research-based success in teaching that she emerged as the ideal candidate to lead our elementary instructional efforts, working with principals, teachers, and students.”
Henson had served as lead teacher at Cuba Elementary School in southern Graves County since 2011. She also served there as a guidance counselor for four years and as a teacher, starting in 2000.
