EDWARDS SELECTED FOR KPS SUPERINTENDENT
Kearney Public Schools is pleased to announce that Dr. Kent Edwards of Carrollton, Georgia has accepted the position of superintendent of schools. Jon Watts, KPS Board of Education president said, "While all four of our candidates were highly qualified, Dr. Edwards proved to be a perfect match for our district."
Edwards comes from a district roughly the size of Kearney Public Schools but has had extensive experience in both larger and smaller school districts. "He has a wealth of experience and knowledge to share with our district," said Watts.
Edwards was a student teacher at Kearney High School and later served as KHS assistant principal from 1992-1995. He then moved to Georgia. Edwards earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Kearney State College in 1982 and 1989. Dr. Edwards earned his doctorate in educational leadership from NOVA Southeastern University in 2002.
The newly constructed Kearney High School, set to open in fall of 2016, will include Nevco scoreboards and equipment at the outdoor activity complex as well as the indoor arena. Bearcat fans will be welcomed by a custom Nevco full color LED video display. The display will feature everything from thrilling game action, to on-the-spot reruns of exciting plays, to vibrant active graphics, and informational messages. READ MORE
