Twelve Kentucky school districts were named 'Bright Spots' in a new report by The Center for Business and Economic Research (CBER) in the UK Gatton College of Business and Economics.
One of the districts included is Hazard Independent Schools.
Superintendent Sondra Combs says she is proud to call Eastern Kentucky home. "Growing up here a lot of times people think, oh Eastern Kentucky, you know, they can't do as well," she said. But Hazard Independent proved those stereotypes wrong with high achievement scores.
