Fayette County's Manny Caulk finalist for superintendent of the year
Fayette County Superintendent Dr. Emmanuel Caulk is one of four people in the running for the 2019 Kentucky Superintendent of the Year Award.
The Kentucky Association of School Administrators announced the finalists Friday morning. The other three finalists are Sherry Horsley in Greenup County, Steve Miracle in Trimble County and Patricia Sheffer in Union County.
"They are exemplary leaders who have distinguished themselves and their districts by leading by example and setting a clear vision for the students and communities they serve," said Executive Deputy Director Rhonda Caldwell.
The association said Caulk was selected as a finalist because he "led Fayette County Schools through a dramatic turnaround by intentionally engaging students, staff, families, and community members in a top to bottom examination of the district and building systems necessary for sustained success."
The winner, who will be announced Nov. 19, will participate in the American Association of School Administrators' Superintendent of the Year Award program and be recognized nationally.
The 2019 Kentucky Superintendent of the Year will also receive a $2,500 scholarship to give to a high school senior in their district.
