    Gov. Beshear praises innovation at Carter G. Woodson

    When Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear toured Carter G. Woodson Academy, he commended the all-male school’s creative and innovative approach. “I’m impressed with all the work you’re doing and even more impressed with your students,” he told Rosz Akins, the school’s founder and now dean of students at Woodson. “Watching this grow and what it’s become shows what can happen when you take a good program, a good idea and bring it to life,” Beshear said. “In these classrooms, we have Kentucky’s leaders of the future. Carter G. Woodson shows us that innovation can and should happen in public schools. As a Fayette County graduate, I’m excited to see where we’re going. I hope we can see more schools like this all across Kentucky.”
