Kentucky’s largest organization of school administrators has chosen its officers for 2020-2021.

The Kentucky Association of School Administrators (KASA), which represents more than 3,100 education leaders statewide, elected a slate of four during its annual meeting in Louisville:

  • President: Bob Bennett, high school principal, Middlesboro Independent Schools;
  • President-Elect: Taylora Schlosser, superintendent, Marion County Schools
  • Vice President: Contessa Orr, chief academic officer, Logan County Schools
  • Immediate Past President: Jason Detre, assistant high school principal, Jefferson County Public Schools

“In the coming year, the officers will lead work to sustain the education profession by cultivating support for public schools and reducing educator turnover; engage leaders of color and those with diverse ethnic backgrounds; raise KASA’s profile at the state and national level to drive policy that supports public education; and ensure KASA is on target to carry out the strategic mission of developing learners and connecting school leaders to policy makers,” Rhonda Caldwell, KASA executive director, said in the announcement.
