  • Library employees win scholarships

    Williams and Graff each received a $500 scholarship. Both are attending Bluegrass Community and Technical College.

    The State Board for the Certification of Librarians created the Library Science Tuition Scholarship program to encourage continuing education among library administrators and staff. The board distributed $8,500 in scholarship money to 12 Kentucky public library employees for the fall semester.

  • Open houses, student registration scheduled by schools

     Scheduling registration a few weeks before school starts is a good way for LaRue County High School, as principal Paul Mullins says, “to be ready to start school when school starts.”

    “We want to spend as much time as we can in instruction once the term begins,” Mullins said. “Students pick their classes in the spring for the next school year so that by registration time, their schedules are made out.”
