McCracken County Football Living Up to Expectations

McCracken County High School football is living up to the expectations of the newly consolidated school, crushing almost all of their opponents in lopsided blowouts. 

And after the first round playoff pummeling of Boone County last week, the Mustangs will face, easily one of the toughest opponents yet, the 11-1 Central Hardin County High School.

The new consolidated McCracken County High School had its first day of classes today and, as sheriff deputies expected, there was a high volume of traffic on the roads.  Six McCracken County sheriff deputies were stationed outside the school this morning dealing with traffic back-ups as more than 1,500 students arrived.  Sheriff Jon Hayden said there were officials from the Kentucky Department of Highways monitoring traffic flow and looking into alternate solutions.

Kate Lochte speaks with Dr. Nancy Waldrop, Superintendent of the McCracken County Schools, about the new McCracken County High School. They talk about what qualities make the new school a "landmark" school regionally and nationally, the instructional design known as "small learning communities," and how the small-school intimacy of the previously separated high schools is being preserved in the much larger, consolidated school.
