Superintendent's Message

Denise Yonts

Welcome to Letcher County Public Schools!  As I begin the journey as Superintendent, I am excited about the opportunities that lie ahead. I am honored to have this incredible opportunity to work on behalf of the children of Letcher County.  We will continue to build a strong foundation based on great teachers and leaders, a supportive Board and District staff, and an engaged community. With our strong foundation that has been built over the past five years, we will continue to build a District that exemplifies excellence in all we do. Our overarching theme, “Learners Today, Leaders Tomorrow,” is exhibited daily in the endeavors of our teachers, staff, administration, and students. I know that Letcher County Schools will continue to build on this excellence!

As we look ahead, we remain committed to preparing our students for college and/or careers in the 21st century. In order to accomplish this task, we depend on our exceptional teaching staff to continue to raise the bar in their classrooms and build on our District's strong foundation. I am proud of our many accomplishments in our classrooms and across our district, and I look forward to creating more opportunities for student success with your help.  Strong schools and strong communities go hand in hand.  In Letcher County, we all share a common goal of high-quality education, efficient operations, and strong community.  We look forward to traveling this journey together as we continually seek to prepare our students to be successful leaders of tomorrow.


“Learners Today, Leaders Tomorrow!”
