The KEA Fellows Program was created in 2013 to foster and mentor emerging leaders in our association. At KEA, we believe that leadership is not only a gift but a right. In order to be the “preeminent voice in public education” in Kentucky, it is imperative that we are guided by energetic and passionate leaders who understand the mission of KEA and the value of great public schools.
Becoming a KEA Fellow involves a commitment not only of spirit but of time. Fellows will be mentored by the KEA Executive Committee and immersed in learning the duties and responsibilities of KEA Leadership at all levels. Fellows will have the opportunity to attend local, state, and national experiences in the association. There will be an emphasis on studying leadership styles and opportunities to foster and develop those styles. Within the electronic application, is a detailed contract that outlines the time commitment and expectations of the program.
