Accepting the "Build Kentucky" Award on behalf of Branscum Construction for the construction of the Adair County Primary Center were Terry Loy, Senior Superintendent, and Josh Branscum.  Superintendent Alan Reed and Board Chairman Floyd Burton, Board Member Joe Payne and Principle Patty Jones accepted the award on behalf of the owner, Adair County Board of Education.  Accepting the award for Sherman Carter Barnhart Architects were Gabe Jones and Michael Smith.
