Matt Shafer will serve as interim athletic director at Pendleton County High School and oversee the high school sports teams. Any questions, he can be contacted at 859-654-3355.

The partnership between Pendleton County Schools, Pendleton County Recreation Commission, Pendleton County Fiscal Court and City of Falmouth is a unique situation that allows a seamless development for kids from recreation sports to middle school to high school.

“The partnerships as a whole have been working rather well for the most part.  There could be a little tweaking done in the future. The partnership between recreation and school works really good especially when scheduling fields and gyms,”  Pendleton County Judge Executive David Fields said.
