Educator Named Superintendent of the Year

The chief of Jessamine County schools walked into Jessamine Career and Technology Center on Wednesday afternoon and was baffled when she was greeted by applause from dozens of district administrators, school officials, friends and family. “I thought maybe I had missed something on my calendar — what are they doing?” superintendent Lu Young said. “I knew it wasn’t my birthday.” Then she saw Wayne Young, executive director of the Kentucky Association of School Administrators (KASA), and figured it out — she was KASA’s 2012 superintendent of the year.
