  • LCHS students rally for life

    A group of LaRue County students is helping organize what they’re calling a “pep rally for life.” The event, originated by Department of Agriculture intern and LCHS alum Ashley Cottrell, is being run by Dale Dobson, head of safety for the Department of Agriculture.

    According to Dobson, the event started in LaRue County almost 20 years ago. Now it’s coming back, and Dobson said it’s the kids who have coordinated the event.

  • Band of Hawks compete and host

Smith said they felt something needed to be done about LaRue County’s contest, which, as he said, has been declining in popularity in recent years. Last year, Smith said the contest was canceled as only four bands signed up.
