Congratulations to our newest FranklinCovey Leader in Me Legacy and Lighthouse Schools who were recently recognized during the annual Leader In Me Symposium! Receiving this remarkable honor reflects a deep commitment toward leadership development in each of our students. Bristow, Jennings Creek and Jody Richards received the highly regarded Lighthouse status while Alvaton and Plano Elementaries received the prestigious Legacy status! WCPS now has 13 of only 737 Lighthouse schools across the globe and 3 of only 20 Legacy schools across the entire world! It was an honor to celebrate these schools and our students during the global Leader in Me Symposium and also at their in-school celebrations! 

Due to the incredible work being done by Team WCPS members across our school district, WCPS was asked to host the global Leader in Me Symposium with FranklinCovey Education, which was held on March 18-19 at the Sloan Convention Center where over 500 conference participants attended. Several of our schools and students were featured as a part of the symposium; it truly was a historic few days for our school district. Thanks to our local Chamber of Commerce, our region’s community and business leaders understand the value of developing strong leadership skills in our students, and now the entire nation has had an opportunity to see the great work being done by our faculty, staff and students to develop and foster those leadership skill sets. 

With spring here and summer just around the corner, Graduation dates and times were officially approved during our March Board of Education meeting. See the schedule below as we anxiously await recognizing our 2024 graduates:

  • Friday, May 24, 2024 - Warren Central High School at 6:00 p.m.

  • Saturday, May 25, 2024 - Warren East High School at 9:00 a.m.

Congratulations to the Warren Central Dragons for their sixth Regional basketball championship over the past seven seasons. The defending state champions made a valiant run back to Lexington and lost to the eventual state runner up in a fantastic game that went down to the wire. Although we are extremely proud of the outstanding accomplishment of making it back to back to Rupp Arena for the third consecutive season, I am especially proud of how well our Dragon athletes and coaches represented all of WCPS in Lexington. It’s no easy feat to make it to the Sweet 16 and six out of seven seasons is an incredible run!

Also, congratulations to our students and sponsors who competed and/or participated in the Governor’s Cup, Kentucky Beta competitions, and school musicals! All across our community and State, we see our students shine every day and we are so proud of our faculty and staff that invest their time and passion in providing these opportunities for students to showcase their talents, both inside and outside the classroom walls.
