Carl Stoltzfus District Employee Receives Award

carl Each year KAGE presents Service and Advocacy Awards.  The awards were announced at the KAGE Annual Conference in Lexington February 26-27. KAGE thanks KHEAA for its continued support for the KAGE Distinguished Student Award.

Carl Stoltzfus, retired instructional supervisor for Hart County Schools, is an outstanding educator and advocate for gifted children. His career has exemplified commitment, advocacy, and compassion for students. He is not a man defined by the titles earned throughout his career — principal, supervisor of instruction, and director of gifted services. Rather, he is defined by the meaningful relationships he built with students. Carl is an advocate of all students, but his passion lies with gifted education. As gifted services coordinator, he was an advocate for students. Often, he would teach pull-out lessons and lead teacher professional development. He was an active member of various professional organizations and diligently promoted gifted education within the district and beyond.

Louisville Science Pathways (LSP) High School Summer Research Internship Program 2017


The University of Louisville is offering to students who are truly excited about science: the chance to work in a research laboratory through the Louisville Science Pathways (LSP) Summer Research Internship Program, sponsored by the Science Policy and Outreach Group (SPOG), a graduate student group interested in sparking interest in science careers.

This competitive program, runs for 8 weeks beginning shortly after the academic school year ends, offers students a hands-on research experience working with researchers both on the Belknap and Health Sciences Campuses. The goal is to enroll students who do have an interest in the sciences, but are not already adorned with experience and accolades. This is to be an opportunity to those students who may not feel qualified for the more competitive programs which offer a stipend and poster project. Students must commit a minimum of 20 hours per week to their research, and attend the full eight weeks of the program.


Congrats to Holli Butler’s class at Bonnieville Elementary for being a Lexia usage winner!!
