Just stumbled across this strong endorsement while looking for Sharron Oxendine's email address.
This from the KEA:
KEA Applauds Selection of Dr. Holliday
as New Commissioner of Education
The Kentucky Education Association applauds the Kentucky Board of Education on its selection of Dr. Terry Holliday as our new commissioner of education. KEA believes he was clearly the best choice among the four finalists. Dr. Holliday has a proven track record of pushing for excellence and for collaboration with all who care about children’s learning and public schools. He comes highly recommended by leaders of the North Carolina Association of Educators, KEA’s sister organization.
Dr. Holliday initiated a conversation with KEA leaders prior to his interview with the KBE, to solicit educators’ views of the most important issues facing our schools and our children. Such reaching out to partners is typical of his work throughout his outstanding career in North Carolina.
KEA looks forward to working with Dr. Holliday as we all fight for the same thing – high levels of learning for all Kentucky children.
