By West Kentucky Star Staff
GRAVES COUNTY - Matthew Madding will lead the Graves County School District as superintendent, beginning July 1.

The Graves County Board of Education voted to hire Madding during a special, called meeting Wednesday afternoon. Madding thanked the Board for giving him this opportunity and promised to give it his very best.

“At the end of the day, all great teachers get into education because they want to have that impact on young people's lives,” Madding said. “I'm honored and humbled that the Board has given me this opportunity to have such a large scope of impact on the students of Graves County.”

Madding graduated as valedictorian of the Graves High Class of 2002. He then earned a bachelor's degree from the University of Kentucky, majoring in mathematics education. He taught math at Graves High from 2006-11. He earned a master's degree in secondary education at Murray State University, while teaching. Then, he earned a master's degree in administration through Northern Kentucky University.

He was hired as principal at Farmington Elementary School and served in that role for the 2011-12 school year. He then was appointed interim principal at Graves High for 2012-13 year. At the end of that school year, he was hired as principal, serving in that role for the past six years.

Kim Dublin retires June 30, after serving six years as superintendent and her entire 31-year career in the school district.
