Nathan Jones - 2015 Wall of Fame Recipient

Congratulations to Nathan Jones who was selected as the 2015 Wall of Fame recipient.  Nate is a 2004 graduate of Pendleton County High School.  He went on to Northern Kentucky University where he received a full scholarship to play on the Norse baseball team, pitching the Norse from 2005-2007.  Following his junior year, he was selected in the fifth round of the 2007 Major League Baseball draft by the Chicago White Sox.    

Due to the White Sox schedule and contract limitations with the organization, Nathan was unable to be in attendance to accept the honor.  Click here to see Nate's message to the graduates and community that was shown at the commencement ceremony.

Seniors Walk the Walk!

The Class of 2015 have been excellent role models for the younger students of the school district.  To put more emphasis on that statement,  the Class of 2015 --in cap and gown-- walked the halls of Southern Elementary, Northern Elementary, and Sharp Middle School on Monday, June 1.  The "Senior Walk" not only shared with the younger students the importance of getting College and Career Ready, but allowed the grads to share their success and gave their former teachers a proud moment of accomplishment.  This was the first year for the Senior Walk but hopefully an annual tradition has been started  at PHS.  Congratulations Class of 2015!
