Student Spotlight: Alicia Konichek

Bullitt Central High School Student, Alicia Konichek, was recently elected to a leadership position within the Educators Rising Kentucky student organization. Konichek was named Vice President of Communications for the 2022-2023 academic year. 

“Educators Rising is a phenomenal student organization that develops future teachers through our Teaching and Learning Pathway programs. Students are provided experiences to participate in clinical experiences in our own BCPS classrooms and also learn leadership skills that will prepare them to be model future teachers for our school district and community.” said BCPS Assistant Superintendent, Mrs. Adrienne Usher.

Educators Rising Kentucky is a Career and Technical Student Organization for students interested in the field of education-related careers. Starting in high school, Educators Rising provides passionate young people with hands-on teaching experience, sustains their interest in the teaching profession, and helps them cultivate the skills they need to be successful educators. The result is a pipeline of accomplished teachers who are positioned to make a lasting difference — not only in the lives of their students, but also in the field of teaching. By establishing this organization in Bullitt County, BCPS is finding its own future educators in today’s classrooms.

“I am so excited to start this new journey as the Kentucky Educators Rising Vice President of Communications. I am eager to collaborate with my peers and learn through this new experience. I look forward to working with future and current educators and I can't wait to start making an impact in my community,” Alicia Konichek said.

“We are so proud that Alicia will be serving as a Educators Rising State Officer as she can provide our district, staff, and her peers with a broader perspective and knowledge to help us improve our teaching and learning programs at our high schools for students along with growing our local Educators Rising Chapter,” said BCPS Assistant Superintendent, Mrs. Adrienne Usher.
