  • Marcum revisits gig as Campbellsville Tiger

    Daniel Marcum, a 1991 LaRue County High School graduate, revealed a secret this winter to his mother, Janet Marcum, that he had kept from the time he was a student at Campbellsville University.

    “I had no idea during those years he attended school there (1993-96) that he was the Tigers' mascot,” said Janet, who lives in Buffalo. 

    “Some schools don’t mind revealing who the mascot is while others, like Campbellsville, like to keep it a secret,” said Daniel, who has served as youth minister at Columbia Baptist Church since 1998.
