Kenton County School District Gets New Superintendent
Kenton County Schools has found its new superintendent in eastern Kentucky.
Dr. Henry Webb will take over as leader of the 13,000-student district, it was announced Tuesday. He arrives from Floyd County Schools where he has been superintendent since 2007.

This year, Webb was named Kentucky Association of School Administrators' superintendent of the year, and in 2016 was named the Kentucky School Board Association's F.L. Dupree superintendent of the year.
The Kentucky Department of Education awarded Webb in 2014 with the Dr. Samuel Robinson Award, given to individuals or groups in the state for outstanding leadership, commitment, and service in promoting equity and opportunity to learn at high levels for all Kentucky students.
Webb attended Alice Lloyd College, and earned a bachelor's degree from Morehead State, a master's in education from the University of Louisville, another master's and his doctorate in education from Morehead State.
Webb takes over at the district's office in Ft. Wright on July 1, replacing Terri Cox-Cruey, who retired.
