  • LaRue Co. Reads a success

    The late astronomer and scientist Carl Sagan once said, “One of the greatest gifts adults can give to their offspring and to their society is to read to children.”

    Our LaRue County community is blessed to have a cadre of volunteers who rally around this belief by volunteering to spend time reading to LaRue County elementary students each week as part of the LaRue County Reads program.

    Since the program’s initial year in 2005-06, some 475 students have benefitted from being paired with volunteer mentors.

  • LCMS Collects $1,000 for Harvey Victims

    LaRue County Middle School students and staff showed their generosity to Hurricane Harvey’s victims by collecting $1,000 in one week.

    The money, collected Tuesday through Friday, will go to the American Red Cross for distribution.

    Jason Detre, LCMS principal, said eighth-grade science teacher Jamie Russell came up with the idea.

    “He wanted to show students that they could make an impact even if we couldn’t physically go to Houston and help,” Detre remarked.
