On Tuesday, March 13th, Adair County High School Students took place in an organized Walk-Out in opposition to Gun Violence in schools in the wake of the school shootings at Marshall County High School in Benton, Kentucky and Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

Weeks prior, student leaders met regularly with ACHS administration to discuss ways that ACHS students could actively, meaningfully, and safely participate in one of the scheduled walk-outs. The movement and conversations that were happening nationwide were also happening at Adair County High School, and student leadership wanted ACHS students to be a part of a positive force for change. Once students and administrators agreed on a time, date, and format, the event was scheduled. The students planned their campus activity with no gun protests, no political statements -- just a demand for safety.

The night features two one-act plays--each with a Christmas theme--with a time to mingle and dine on desserts between each play. The performances will give the audience a slice of two different dramatic stylings, each representing an era different from the other.

ACHS Career Ready, Industry Certified Agriculture Students Featured In Nationwide Publication Career Ready and Industry Certified Ag Students at ACHS

At Adair County High School, student certifications have become a defining factor when classifying students as career-ready. By implementing the industry certification program powered by iCEV, Randy Rexroat and Kirby Hancock, Agriculture Educators at Adair County High School in Columbia, Kentucky, are filling a major gap in their career-readiness goals.

“We were lacking an accurate guide for instruction to prepare students for prior assessments,” Hancock said. “However, the lessons, videos, activities and quizzes within iCEV do a really good job preparing students for the final certification exam.”

Through the iCEV platform, students have the opportunity to earn certifications such as the Bayer CropScience Plant Science Certification, the Elanco Fundamentals of Animal Science Certification and the American Meat Science Association’s Food Safety and Science Certification. All three certifications are state-approved and meet the requirement for career-readiness. Additionally, students can earn the certifications while they complete their regular coursework and gain concrete, evidenced skills to include on their résumé
