  • Students should check KEES accounts for accuracy

    Kentucky high school students and 2017 graduates should check their Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship (KEES) accounts for accuracy.

    KEES allows students to earn money for college by getting good grades in high school and for qualifying scores on the ACT or SAT. Students eligible for free or reduced lunches may also earn awards for good scores on Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and Cambridge Advanced International exams. KEES is administered by the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA).

  • Camp Invention continues to grow

    When Kathy Ross began her first year as director of Camp Invention, she had a camp of 55 youngsters, which she thought was a decent start for a rural county’s initial year.

    Numbers have grown! This year’s ninth camp, which began Monday and runs through Friday at Abraham Lincoln Elementary School, is the largest in the state with a maximum 125 campers enrolled and four on the waiting list.
