• Wiley named KHEAA outreach counselor

     Toni Wiley has been named the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority outreach counselor for LaRue County.

    Wiley was previously the KHEAA outreach counselor in the southern part of the state.

    “I’ve loved serving the 13 southern counties but am looking forward to helping students closer to home,” Wiley said. “I want to help our students get the most KEES money they can and become more prepared for life after high school.”


     From articles on diesel pickup engines to things to do while snowed in, the online publication “Talk of the Hawk” provides a cross section of student ideas at LaRue County High School.

    Teacher Summer Garris’s creative writing class produces the publication which comes out four times during the school year. The 12 students in the class are sophomores, juniors, and seniors.

  • On Educating LaRue: Quilt commemorates Lincoln play, musical

     Nancy Sprowles is a practical person who believes in the old adage “waste not, want not.”

    She incorporated that philosophy with leftover pieces of material used in costumes for a school production into a full/queen-size log cabin quilt that she presented to Penny Akers, music teacher at Abraham Lincoln Elementary School last month.

    The quilt, like the school, has a direct connection to the Abraham Lincoln motif.
