A message from Superintendent Kelly Sprinkles
March 2, 2021
With great sorrow, I share that Jerry Paul Cox, coordinator of the district’s facilities and purchasing department, passed away this morning in Barbourville. At this time we do not have details of his death. Death can be difficult for us to understand, especially when it is sudden and one of our own.
Beyond ensuring our facilities are maintained and supplies stocked, Mr. Cox had previously served as a member of the Knox County Board of Education including the role of chairman of the board. He represented the Dewitt and Flat Lick area, school board district three. Regardless of role, Mr. Cox was a constant supporter of our schools and students.
Our sincere condolences go out to Mr. Cox’s family. Please keep them in thought and prayer.
