    In its new edition (Fall 2019), Southern Business & Development magazine profiled Boyle County Schools among “The Littlest Giants”—one of "the best rated K-12 educational systems" among small and medium-sized locations in the South by Pittsburgh-based research firm Niche (www.Niche.com).  "Education, particularly K-12, is becoming increasingly important.  Growing school districts in each state are vital to employers in order to back-fill labor years from now. . . . In an age where available labor is virtually non-existent, this data of growing, A-rated K-12 schools are incredibly important to site searchers in the economic development process."
    Read the entire article online at http://sb-d.com/index.php/magazine/article/730.  In this edition, SB&D is beginning its coverage of top-ranked school systems in small and medium-sized locations under 750,000 (!) in city/county population in the states of Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, and Kentucky.
    With the support and assistance of our education partners at Boyle County Schools, such as Director of Communications Jacquie Peterson, the Economic Development Partnership was given the opportunity to submit a 100-word profile to SB&D to provide more detail about the school district’s workforce-related initiatives.  This profile allowed Boyle County Schools to stand out from what would have otherwise been just a listing.  And, Boyle’s profile jumps off page 70 of the magazine with a feature candid photo of the Boyle County High School Rebel football team and former Coach Chuck Smith!  
    Congratulations for Boyle County Schools for this recognition!
