She's the county's first female superintendent

When Robin Cochran was named superintendent of Washington County Schools Thursday night, some may have seen the announcement as a career move, but Cochran said it was much more than that.


“This isn’t just a career move for me. This is my life,” she said. “This is where I want to be. I haven’t applied anywhere else, and I don’t want to be superintendent of any other district. This is home to me.”

Cochran, 37, is the first female to hold the position in Washington County, and is one of only 39 female superintendents in Kentucky, according to the Kentucky Department of Education, which also reported that to be the greatest number of female superintendents at one time in Kentucky’s history. Formerly Robin Filiatreau, she is a native of Fredericktown in Washington County.
