“Craft Academy welcomes its fourth class; the Class of 2020. Walker Wood, son of Andrew and Beth Wood, members of Maysville First Presbyterian Church has been selected to attend the Academy.
These young people represent some of the best and brightest students in the commonwealth who have an expressed interest in pursuing a STEM career. Craft Academy and Morehead State University look forward in expanding the goals and aspirations of these students as they dedicate their academic efforts to Imagine, Invent and Impact, Kentucky and beyond.
The Craft Academy for Excellence in Science and Mathematics will meet the unique educational needs of academically gifted and talented high school juniors and seniors in the Commonwealth. A college-level curriculum will allow students to finish high school while also completing up to two years of university coursework. It will offer a residential college experience and environment to promote innovation and a creative enterprise, developing the full potential of the state’s brightest minds and most promising future leaders.
Students will live on campus designed for high school-aged students. The facility will have meeting and social space and be staffed 24/7. Counselors and advisors also will be available.
At the end of the two years, students will have earned a minimum of 60 credit hours, finished high school and have the opportunity to further their education at MSU or transfer to any other college/university in Kentucky or elsewhere.

The winter storm is pulling on out of town, leaving behind snow and ice covered roads to start the weekend.
The transition from rain to snow took a little longer than anticipated, cutting down on snow totals in some areas. Still, several inches of snow fell on top of ice. Gusty winds also continue to blow the snows around early today, January 12, 2018.
