A Floyd County Schools board member was honored this week, following an election placing him on the board of directors for the Kentucky Center for School Saftety.
Jeff Stumbo, who serves as chairman of the Floyd County school board, was elected to the position earlier this week. The Kentucky Center for School Safety (KCSS) Board of Directors is a consortium of the Kentucky Department of Education, Eastern Kentucky and Murray State Universities, as well as the University of Kentucky.
Gov. Steve Beshear had previously appointed Stumbo to serve on the KCSS board two years ago and recently re-appointed Stumbo for another two-year term.
Jon R. Akers, executive director for KCSS, said Stumbo’s presence on the board will be invaluable.
“Jeff brings many skills to this role,” said Akers. “Having been a well-respected police officer, his work with the Floyd County Board of Education and his strong interest in the safety of students and educators make us lucky to have someone of his caliber appointed to our board and moreover elected chairperson.”
Floyd County Schools Superintendent Henry Webb said that Stumbo will continue to serve admirably noting that he has a history of doing “whatever it takes” for students and staff.
