Logan County schools superintendent Dr. Kevin Hub informed the board of education this week that he will be leaving at the end of the school year to take a job with another district.
In an email to the board, Hub said that he would resign effective June 30. He will take over as the superintendent of Scott County Schools in Georgetown on July 1.
Hub took over as superintendent of Logan County Schools in July of 2014 following the retirement of Marshall H. Kemp, who served the district as superintendent for 15 years (1999-2014).
“While it has been a tremendous honor to serve as your superintendent during the past two years, my passion has always led me to positions where I feel that I can have the greatest impact on the lives of students and their families,” Hub said. “With nearly 9,000 students, Scott County provides that opportunity.”
Hub came to Logan County after serving as Assistant Superintendent and Chief Operating Officer for Madison County Schools in Richmond.
“This was a very difficult decision to make because I have really enjoyed serving the students of Logan County,” Hub said. “This is easily the most rewarding job I’ve ever had.”
Hub is a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point with a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering and Environmental Geography, Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond with a Masters of Arts in Education degree in Geography Education, and Spalding University in Louisville with a Doctorate in Education in Leadership Education.
“I am deeply grateful to the Logan County Board of Education and the entire Logan County community for the opportunity to serve as superintendent,” Hub said. “As a school community, we have worked to expand opportunities for our students to succeed in life beyond graduation, to access post-secondary education and to enter the workforce. We have developed a culture that puts the needs of students first. We have expanded staff opportunities for professional development and growth. We have increased communication and engaged our community in ways never previously imagined.”
He will most likely be remembered for his work in getting the plans for a new Area Technology Center off the ground.
“While I cannot claim our work is finished in Logan County, I also know it never could be,” Hub said. “However, I am reassured that I leave behind a tremendously talented leadership team capable of continuing the district’s work on behalf of the students, staff and the entire Logan County community.”
