ASHLAND, Ky. — Emily Aliff wasn’t thinking about winning a contest when she sat in a wheelchair at the top of a third-floor stairwell at Ashland Middle School last October.
The eighth-grader was wondering how a genuinely impaired student would get down to the ground floor and then to the exit doors if the school building were on fire.
Emily and a number of other AMS students who were with her that day are still pondering the problem and working on solutions, but today they definitely are thinking about winning a contest.
Ashland Middle School for the third year in a row has been named the state winner of the Samsung Solve For Tomorrow contest, which it won nationally in 2018.

Investment in Ourselves
Hello from the desk of the Alliance. This has been a productive week here with our Board Meeting, Ribbon Cutting and even taking time to invest in our leaders and workers of tomorrow. All and all, not a bad week to be and live in the region.
Just last night the Alliance celebrated with Kristie, Will, and Jack Patterson in a wonderful open house and ribbon cutting at The Edge Business Center located off Diederich Boulevard in Russell. This facility was a former Ashland Oil facility that has been repurposed by the Patterson’s! It offers beautiful meeting space for 400 plus with tables and chairs and offers office space from one single office to suite settings. It is a great example of this community reinventing itself. It shows how vision, work and talent positions us for growth now and for the future.
