  • It’s a Great Day to be a Hawk!

    I am humbled and honored to have been chosen as your next superintendent of schools. LaRue County Schools has developed a reputation of being one of the best school districts in the state, so I am extremely excited about becoming part of the team and your community.

    Before applying for the position, I researched several sources of data and information to help me determine if LaRue County Schools would be a good fit for me and my educational beliefs. While student performance is above state average in most areas, that’s not what drew me to LaRue County.

  • Agriculture and Natural Resources Education

    The ultimate test of forage quality is animal performance. Producing high quality forages is vital to improved animal performance, whether your goal is more pounds of milk, a higher rate of gain, increased wool production or an improved conception rate.

    Forages provide a major percentage of the nutrients for beef and dairy cattle, sheep and goats, horses and ruminant wildlife. If the quality isn’t right, you can’t feed animals enough forage to achieve production goals.

  • From Italy to Hodgenville

    Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” Well, for Eleonora Bellu, her experience has been just that.

    Nearly 5,000 miles away from her home in Seregno, Italy, Eleonora has made her time count while in “good ole” Hodgenville, Kentucky, being involved in volleyball, cheer and now tennis.
