SHEPHERDSVILLE - The Bullitt County Education Association honored local builder G. Jesse Flynn as its third recipient of the Distinguished Citizen Award.


Flynn received the award during a special public dinner held at Paroquet Springs Conference Centre.

Flynn was awarded for his community involvement including his membership with the Bullitt County Chamber of Commerce.

BCEA president Brenda Hutchison praised Flynn for his vested interests and continuous investments within the Bullitt County community.

Flynn thanked the BCEA and all local educators in making strides in both Bullitt County Public Schools and toward the planned Bullitt County community college.

A 50/50 drawing was won by local resident Bud White, who immediately donated the cash prize to former BCEA Distinguished Citizen Award winner Dr. Mohana Arla toward the new college.
