For the fourth year in a row, the engineering students under Lori Ricks, the engineering teacher at Trigg County High School’s Vocational School, have had the highest test scores in the state.

“We received news on Tuesday afternoon (Jan. 8) from the University of Kentucky that we were once again number one in the state, and this has been four years running,” Ricks said. “I’m so proud of our students. Every year, they perform, it’s wonderful.”

Ricks says UK tracks three classes each year, and has for the past four years: her freshman class, an introduction to engineering design; her sophomore class, which is a principles of engineering design; and her digital electronics class.

Ricks said her students all take an end-of-course assessment, an assessment that students around the country that take those particular classes take, and her students had the highest scores in the state for that particular assessment.

Each of those three classes had about 30 or more students last year, said Ricks, who added that with two sections of freshmen, one section of sophomores and two sections of digital electronics, there were more than 100 students who took this assessment.
