Can marketing the school system to new parents help make them more involved in their child’s education in the future? Trigg County Schools may find out soon.

On July 27, Community Education Coordinator Brenda Southwick and Special Education Director Lana Williams invited employees of Trigg County Health Department to the Board of Education office for a small luncheon to tell them about their new “Future Wildcat” program.

Southwick said that the goal of the program was to make personal contact with new parents to help them understand the importance of nurturing their child’s education, and especially reading to them, from an early age and that the school system was there to answer any concerns they might have.

“The earlier we can get parents to be partners with us in their child’s education, the better,” Superintendent Tim McGinnis said at the meeting. He also thanked Southwick and Williams for their work in getting the program off the ground.
