Adams Named Project Lead the Way Biomedical Teacher of the Year
Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programs are vital for students. Jobs in these areas continue to advance and the need for qualified employees in a variety of career fields is only expected to grow. The solution to meet such global demand includes education initiatives like Project Lead the Way which provides K-12 STEM programs throughout the nation.
Scott County Schools meets this growing need, in part, through the science, technology, engineering and math offerings available at Elkhorn Crossing School with specialized instruction offered in Engineering, Health Sciences, and Biomedicine.
The contribution of ECS and its dedicated teachers has not gone unnoticed. Biomedical Teacher Dr. Julye Adams was named the Project Lead the Way Biomedical Teacher of the Year, pictured below. Former Engineering Teacher Doug Klein presented the award at the Project Lead the Way Conference hosted by Elkhorn Crossing School. Klein now serves as Affiliate Director of Project Lead the Way at the University of Kentucky.
There are 176 Project Lead the Way programs in Kentucky, 36 of those are biomedical programs. Media Arts and Law & Justice are also areas of study for students at ECS.
