Paducah Middle's Kight named Cooke Young Scholar


Paducah Middle School eighth grader Paige Kight, daughter of Kelly and Robert Kight, has been named a Jack Kent Cooke Young Scholar in the Cooke Foundation's pre-college scholarship program. Kight is one of 50 eighth graders in the nation selected for the highly competitive program.

Kight's selection was based on her high academic ability and achievement, leadership, purposeful and meaningful service to others, persistence, and ability to set and remain focused on her goals. The eight month application process included standardized testing, long and short essays, numerous recommendations from school and community members, and interviews with national educational leaders.
