  • Middle schoolers donate 705 pairs of sandals overseas

    Even a pair of flip flops can make a difference in the quality of someone’s life.
    That’s a lesson LaRue County Middle School students received when they, with the guidance of teacher Seronia Hudson, collected 705 pairs of the inexpensive sandals to ship to Afghanistan.
    A Fort Knox battalion in the war-torn country will distribute the shoes as a part of an international goodwill effort to the Afghan children. Temperatures can reach well over 100 degrees, making walking in the harsh climate and rocky terrain extremely difficult without shoes.

  • Earning GED can be a steep hill to climb

    Sometimes earning one’s GED can be a big hill to climb – literally.
    Josie Singleton, who is obtaining her General Education Diploma at LaRue County School’s Learning Center, knows firsthand the uphill battle.
    Two days each week, the 21-year-old woman who has had spina bifida since birth and is confined to a wheelchair, eases into it and using only her arms, power rolls from her house on Maple Avenue about a half-mile to the learning center located in the district’s central office on College Street.  

  • Band of Hawks base show on "The Starry Night"

    The Band of Hawks at LaRue County High School have learned about leadership along with learning notes.

    The LaRue County High School Marching Band enters the season with more difficult music and a new class in which to compete.

    The band has moved from class 3-A to 2-A this year, which gives them a new set of bands to compete against, band director Jaime Smith said. That can be a challenge in itself, facing bands that aren't familiar to you, Smith said.
