Hancock Recieves Outstanding Kentucky Entry at National History Day Competition
2016 Tilghman graduate Meg Hancock received the Outstanding Kentucky Entry Award at the Kenneth E. Behring National History Day competition at the University of Maryland on June 12-16. Hancock earned regional, state, and national recognition for her research and interpretation of the 2016 NHD theme, “Exploration, Encounter, and Exchange in History.” Hancock’s documentary, “Carnegie Libraries: The Architecture of American Literacy,” detailed the impact of Andrew Carnegie’s commitment to providing places of learning and reflection throughout the United States.

600,000 students from the US, its territories, and select international schools abroad, submitted work related to the national theme. Less than 1%, 3,000 students, advanced to the national competition to present their essays, documentaries, performances, and websites.

This is Tilghman’s sixth year to send a student to the national competition. Tilghman’s chapter of the Kentucky Junior Historical Society is led by Ashley Adkins. The 2017 theme will be “Taking A Stand In History."

There's never a right time to step away from the job where you've spent the better part of two decades. For Paducah Tilghman boys basketball head coach Brad Stieg, Friday marked the end of a long chapter in his life.

Stieg, who spent 18 years on Tilghman's coaching staff including 14 as the head coach, resigned from his position on Friday and will take over as principal of Choices Alternative School within the city school system.

"It's a big deal. There's never a good time to do it because you will always have kids you hate to leave," Stieg said. "I have had several opportunities for administration jobs and felt this was the time to do it. It was very, very tough and happened so fast over the past two weeks."

The acronym "ATB" may not mean much to most, but in Paducah Public Schools it means "all-time-best," and it's something schools, teachers and students celebrate and take seriously.

This year Paducah Tilghman's graduating class achieved several ATBs, including its highest-ever college-or-career-readiness rate and highest ever college scholarship award total.

"We have an all-time-best here of 77 percent of students who are college or career ready," Assistant Superintendent Will Black told school board members at their Monday night meeting. "Out of those, almost 70 percent are college-ready."

The percentage of Tilghman graduates who are ready to step into college, the workforce or both has increased steadily the past five years, Black explained, rising from 35 percent in 2011 to this year's 77 percent. The school's college-ready rate has also steadily increased from 35 percent in 2011 to this year's 69 percent.
