What's news this week in Crittenden County...

Crittenden County Middle School opened as a high school in 1950.

Built in 1949, Crittenden County Middle School is far from the oldest building in Kentucky where students learn to read and write; in fact, some date back to the early 1900s. But nearing seven decades since the school first opened – and with a looming enrollment boom – CCMS is at the head of the class when it comes to needed facilities upgrades in the school district. That's part of what a local committee formed to develop a plan for educational building priorities in the district is likely to recommend when it wraps up its work in the coming weeks.
