  • Exploration leads to discovery at Kids Crew

    Children at Kids Crew Plus have been busy “Exploring our World” this summer.

    That’s the theme of the day care operated by LaRue County Schools at the district’s central office in Hodgenville.

    The 30 children, ranging from three to 12 years old, have visited several area sites, including Abraham Lincoln’s birthplace in May.

    “In June the children began learning about historic Bardstown,” said Denise Rose, program director.  

  • Saving For College: Graduate with the least amount of debt
  • Rex Hanson looks back on LaRue career

    One of LaRue County High School’s key faculty members has accepted a position outside the district.

    Rex Hanson, senior class sponsor and Math Department chairman, will teach dual credit college algebra and algebra 2 at John Hardin High School this fall.

    “I am leaving because I felt it was time for a change,” said Hanson. “There will be new experiences and opportunities in Hardin County to which I am looking forward. There are also some benefits of having my children attend school where they are districted.”

  • Local students graduate from WKU

    Several students graduated in May from Western Kentucky University.

    Brittany A. Carr, Katelyn E. Davila and David E. Higdon, all of Hodgenville, each earned bachelor of science degrees.

    To achieve Dean’s List honors at Eastern, students attempting 14 or more credit hours must earn a 3.5 grade point average out of a possible 4.0.

  • Hodgenville High School Class of 1958
  • KSBA changes tighten regulations

    The Kentucky School Board Association has made several changes to their list of Policies and Administrative Procedure.

    The LaRue County School Board went over the changes at its June 17 meeting.

    “This year it was a little different because the state auditor had several recommendations in light of issues that had occurred within other school districts in the state,” said Superintendent Sam Sanders.

    Changes made to the KSBA Policies and Procedures are very broad, covering multiple areas.

  • ECTC holds pinning ceremony

    Elizabethtown Community and Technical College’s Practical Nursing Program held its annual Pinning Ceremony on May 17 on the ECTC Campus.

  • Superintendent receives raise after debate
