  • Program changes with the times

    Significant changes are coming to the way Kelly Dean Sanders Memorial Fund items are distributed to students.

    “In the past, students who qualified received vouchers where they could obtain needed items at designated businesses in the area,” explained Rip Collins, LaRue County Schools’ director of pupil personnel who is in charge of the charitable program.

    “Now, students will receive a backpack filled with selected items they will need.”

  • Students reflect on future

    High School Commencement is often described as both an ending and a beginning.

    As graduates separate to follow their own pathways to adult life, they say goodbye to a school system they have been part of much of their lives and hello to those as yet unknown roads that lie ahead.

    Kaelyn Herrin, LaRue County High School Class of 2015 valedictorian, and salutatorian Cody McDowell are both aware of what routes they’ll take.
