  • Students could earn money for college through 'Dream Out Loud'

     Kentucky students in grades K-6 have the opportunity to win $1,500 toward college and $500 for their school in the “Dream Out Loud Challenge.” Students are invited to submit an original drawing, poem, essay or video answering the question: “How will I change the world after I go to college?” 

    The annual challenge, sponsored by the Kentucky Education Savings Plan Trust, is intended to encourage Kentucky families to start saving and planning for higher education with their children.

  • ON EDUCATING LARUE: Canceling school can be a tough decision

      LaRue County School District buses cover 1,986 miles along 37 routes every school day.

    In deciding whether or not to close school when bad winter weather threatens to make those roads dangerous to travel, Superintendent Sam Sanders ponders well before dawn the information coming in to him from bus garage personnel.

  • SPACE PLACE: Earth's impenetrable shield

    Sure, the sun is great. It’s nice to not live in a frozen wasteland, after all. But the sun is pretty terrifying, too. It sends a dangerous stream of fast-moving electrons, protons, and other even smaller particles, called photons, toward Earth.

  • Grads named Jeff Green Scholars

    Five 2014 graduates of LaRue County High School have been named Senator Jeff Green Scholars by the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority. To earn this honor, a student must have a 4.0 grade point average each year of high school and at least a 28 composite on the ACT.

    These students have also earned $2,500 a year in Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship awards. If they keep their grades up in college, they will have $10,000 to use toward a four-year degree.
