NEW YORK — Jubilant Ashland middle schoolers hit the streets of New York Wednesday morning to celebrate winning a six-figure prize package in a technology competition.
“We’re just all standing in Times Square. We’re all really excited. We’re jumping up and down and texting all our friends. We’re overwhelmed with excitement,” said seventh-grader Aubree Hay after learning her team of student technology enthusiasts had copped one of three top prizes in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow contest.
The prize is $150,000 worth of high-tech hardware and software for Ashland Middle School, where Aubree and her teammates developed an innovative device for first responders to use in safely handling improperly discarded syringes.

Planning for the Future
Today marked a significant day in the 101 years the Ashland Alliance has been representing Northeast Kentucky. Today, 40 individuals came together to chart a course forward, reaffirm the role this organization plays and set measurable goals. We invited partners to the table and encouraged all to have their say to build the path forward. Kentucky Power sponsored our strategic planning event. They too want to build a stronger region and have served as a leader in Northeast Kentucky. It has been a good day. Thank you to this committee for your time, thoughts, and commitment to this organization and the place we call home.
My section of this report is a bit shorter than usual. Our strategic plan is still rolling out, and already I can see and feel how important this is. We are in a different place for this strategic planning retreat. We now know how to compete and that we can win. No the question is: Are we ready and how do we take full advantage of the opportunity while seeking a diversified economy? These are great topics to discuss, and I will be happy to share the results of the day coming very soon to each of you.
