For the past nine months, head start, kindergarten and first-grade students from Paintsville Elementary School have made their home on the Mayo campus of Big Sandy Community and Technical College (BSCTC).
The students were moved to the college as a temporary location while Paintsville Elementary School underwent a major renovation.
John Brown, with Paintsville Independent Schools, worked as an administrator with the students at the temporary site. He said the college went “above and beyond to provide assistance and make the transition as smooth as possible.”
“We have a new, renovated school down the street, but it’s bittersweet leaving the campus,” said Brown. “We’ve been treated wonderful here, and I want to thank everyone for their willingness to provide our faculty, staff and students with a great environment to learn.”
