The future still remains uncertain for Lacy Elementary School, but the building's interim principal says he's only focused on educating students this year.
Retired Todd County School System Superintendent Mike Kenner was contacted by the Christian County district office when it became clear Lacy would remain open and would need a principal after Christopher Bentzel left to take the principal position at Christian County Middle.
Kenner says he's spent a majority of his time so far interviewing and hiring staff to prepare for the upcoming school year.
The School Board and District Office personnel have tough decisions to make about possible closure of Lacy and other schools in the future, but Kenner says he will only concern himself with giving students the best education possible while he is there.
Kenner brings 33 years of experience in education to the job. The first day of school in Christian County is August 14.
