Meet the Superintendent

Dr. Kent Edwards is the new superintendent of Kearney Public Schools. In 2016, Dr. Edwards came to KPS from Carrollton, Georgia. The two school districts have some interesting similarities. Carrollton City Schools has almost 5,000 students, while KPS has approximately 5,300. Both districts are opening new high schools.

Dr. Edwards is not a stranger to Kearney as he earned both his bachelor's and master's degrees from Kearney State College in 1982 and 1989. He was a student teacher at Kearney High School and later served as KHS assistant principal from 1992-1995. He earned his doctorate in educational leadership from NOVA Southeastern University in 2002.

Dr. Edwards brings a wealth of experiences and knowledge to Kearney Public Schools.

What is a K+ Partner in Education?

K+ is a partnership program where businesses and schools work together to prepare students for the future. Our K+ Program is flexible by design to match the needs and interests of the business with those of the school.

Junior Achievement, an elementary banking program and internships are a few examples of ways local businesses partner with Kearney Public Schools. Businesses may select a specific school or educational program to adopt.
