The video "Once in a Thousand Years" brought the school to the attention of the staff with School Pride. You'll see Bramble on the video at 2:33 saying, "We lost everything from Band-Aids to Promethean Boards."
Principal Bramble and the students and teachers are back in the school now. The ribbon cutting to celebrate the renovations was held on July 27, 2010. She said they never missed a day of school and opened on time on August 5, 2010. The flooding took place in early May, and it took two weeks or more for the water to subside and the building to dry out. NBC staff told her they had never seen a turnout of more than 1,500 volunteers to help with a renovation. To learn more about the flood and rebuilding, visit http://www.ksessuccess.org/.
Bramble earned a degree in elementary education from USI. This year is Jill's third year as principal at KSES she previously taught for 14 years in Clarksville, Tennessee. She and her husband have a six-year old son. Her nephew Cody Felty is a freshman in engineering at USI. Her parents still live in Fairfield and her sister Rhonda Marshall, a 1983 USI graduate in elementary education, teaches at Hebron Elementary School in Evansville.
