WILMORE, Ky. — Educators from across the state of Kentucky met at Asbury University this week to discuss strategies to develop schools that serve the needs of all children, regardless of background.
Rocky Wallace is a former administrator in Kentucky's P-12 system, and has served at the Kentucky Department of Education as a leadership consultant to school principals. While principal at Catlettsburg Elementary in Boyd County, the school was named a Kentucky and U.S. Blue Ribbon School (1996-97). Wallace has also served as the Director of Instructional Support at the Kentucky Educational Development Corporation (KEDC), and received his doctorate in strategic leadership from Regent University in 2007.
