The following was published as a Letter to the Editor in the Kenton Times.

My name is Cindy Murray and I am a 1982 Graduate of Kenton Senior High School.  My family has a long legacy with Kenton City Schools. My grandmother was an elementary school teacher, my mother was an elementary school teacher for 30 years and my father was the high school principal for 16 years and a teacher/guidance counselor before that.  As former educators and a public servant, the Murray family will be voting “YES” for Issue 5 – Kenton City School levy on November 2nd.  

I have witnessed first-hand the tremendous opportunities students receive from a quality education and the economic advantages that it brings to our community.  The importance of preparing our students for their next journey is critical for our future success.  Building a new facility will help develop a positive atmosphere for learning for not only students seeking a higher education upon graduation but also for those entering the workforce.  I have been extremely impressed by the cutting-edge programs that Kenton City Schools offer to our students with the recent addition of the STEM school at the former Northwood Elementary School.  A new building will further enhance the ability to offer a top-rated educational experience for Kenton’s future generation. 

Kenton City Schools is a proud partner in the community that it serves and will continue to be an economic driver in the workforce. Now, Kenton City Schools needs your help by voting “YES” for the levy on Nov. 2. This levy will enable Kenton City Schools to provide quality facilities, which will ensure that students have the skills necessary to continue their education or meet the needs of area employers.

It is our collective responsibility to support the children of this community. Do your part, VOTE YES, KCS! Please join my family and me in supporting Issue 5-Kenton City School levy on Nov. 2nd!
