Graves Schools Galloway gets state award

Graves County Schools’ recently-retired superintendent, Pete Galloway (left) accepts the Kentucky Association of School Administrators’ prestigious Distinguished Service Award during a special ceremony in Louisville Thursday, July 18. Presenting the award is KASA executive director Wayne Young, who said, “… we are both pleased and honored to recognize Pete’s success in our profession, his service to the students of Graves County, and his many contributions to his community by awarding him with this special Distinguished Service Award. We will miss him greatly.” Galloway said he was both honored and humbled by the award. “There are so many people across this state who have done so many great things in education and deserve this award far more than I do,” he commented. “To be presented this award in front of folks who I’ve worked with all these years across the state is special. Even more importantly, to be nominated for this award from people back in my home district who are like family to me, I just can’t say enough about how that makes me feel. It’s certainly a pleasure and an honor that I will never, ever forget.”
