Covington, KY – Covington Catholic High School administrator Bob Rowe is one of 11 administrators selected across the U.S. to have earned the 2022-23 Outstanding PLTW Administrator award, which recognizes outstanding educational leaders for their commitment to providing students with meaningful learning experiences through PLTW programs. PLTW is honoring Mr. Rowe for his work in the PLTW Engineering program. Mr. Rowe has been an administrator at Covington Catholic for 15 years. “Mr. Rowe is truly an educational leader in our school and educational community. Administrators from schools across three states have reached out to him for guidance on implementing an exceptional STEM program.” said Mr. Bob Lind, Director of STEM Programs at CCH. “More importantly, his passion for educating our students and his genuine concern for them makes him an exceptional leader.”
As principal at Covington Catholic High School, Mr. Rowe has led the expansion of the school which included multiply additions and facility upgrades as well as the $3 million Dr. Anthony Zembrodt STEM and Fine Arts Center. It was Mr. Rowe’s vision to build a STEM program using the Project Lead The Way curriculum that would prepare students for real life challenges and work experiences. “We saw a demand for the skills that were needed for students to succeed in the STEM related fields. Therefore, we knew it was essential to adopt a strong curriculum, hire an excellent staff, and construct a state-of-the-art facility to make this possible. We were blessed to receive several significant private donations and our community rallied around us to make this dream become a reality,” stated Mr. Rowe. Covington Catholic’s program includes four credit courses as well as a Robotics program that has sent teams to the state tournament each year since its inception. In 2022, the CovCath Robotics team won their first Kentucky state championship as well as the US Open and took 2nd place in Worlds Tournament amongst 12,000 teams from 40 different countries.
“PLTW educators do incredible work facilitating learning experiences that help inspire and prepare students to reach their full potential. This award acknowledges and recognizes their accomplishments in continuing that," stated Dr. David Dimmett, PLTW Interim President and CEO. “We congratulate them and are proud of the work these educational leaders do to equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary for success beyond the classroom, no matter what career path they choose.”
