It’s obvious when speaking to Mroch that he’s a pretty modest person. Although he doesn’t want to trivialize the recognition, he tends to shrug off such honors, a little embarrassed by the attention.
“It’s a huge honor for my peers to think that much about what I’m doing,” Mroch said. “But really, the focus should be on the kids. I think I have the best kids anywhere and I would say that to anyone anywhere.”
Mroch said that there are 12 districts in Kentucky and that the First District consists of Trigg County and all the districts west of it. He said he felt a little awkward accepting the award because he is also the president of the First District. He said that the directors at all the schools in the KMEA First District vote on the annual awards, and that it applies to the previous school year, which in this case would be 2006-2007. After the district awards are announced, directors put together portfolios so that they will be considered for the state KMEA award, he said.
