Burgin school

earns distinction:

BURGIN - Burgin School has been named a 2002-2003 Super District for Quality Schools by the Southern Association for Colleges and Schools.

Superintendent Richard Webb said the accreditation is special.

"We're very proud of our accreditation; the schools worked hard over the last three years to bring our standards to the point where we could be accredited last year."

Burgin is one of 48 schools in Kentucky and one of 512 throughout the 11 states in the association's region. It is one of the smallest districts in the state.


"Evidently the commission agreed that what we do is the right way for small schools," Webb said. The award is made through the association's executive directors of the Commissions on Elementary, Middle and Secondary School.

"My congratulations go out to Principal Marty Collier and her staff for doing such a wonderful job, day in and day out. That's were the work is really done, at the school level, and they are to be commended.

On being named a super district, Webb said, "It is something we weren't expecting and it's really nice."
