Over its extensive 113-year history, the Bardstown Board of Education has witnessed the appointment of three Black Board members. Leading the way was William Cross, who secured his election in 1960. The torch was then passed to Joe Lee Johnson in 1988. Currently, the distinguished position of the longest-serving Black Board Member is held by Mrs. Kathy Reed, who also holds the distinction of being the first Black woman elected to this esteemed role in 1991. Their invaluable contributions have left an indelible mark on the Bardstown Board of Education's legacy.
