The Kenton Times teamed with WKTN to double this year’s donation for Autism Acceptance Month. An advertising campaign raised $1,000 which was presented Wednesday to the Kenton City Schools Autism Team. It will be used toward a special piece of equipment that will benefit all students that use  the sensory room at Kenton Elementary School. Pictured are (from left, front row) KCS psychologist Amber Whited, KES teacher Brandy Cox, Jenny Hildreth and Chad Spencer of WKTN; (back) Dave Barnes of the Kenton Times, KES occupational therapist and head of the autism team Julie Hammer, Shannon Barnes of WKTN and Sarah Shope-Helman of the Kenton Times.
