SHEPHERDSVILLE — The new year began with a new leader, though this one was a bit more local than D.C.
Justin Guest is the new director of the Bullitt County YMCA. He replaces June Daugherty who retired in December after serving as the only Bullitt County YMCA director ever for 30 years.
Although he may be new to Bullitt County, Guest is no stranger to working for the YMCA. In 2000, he began teaching swim lessons at the northeast YMCA in Louisville. During summers, he refereed and worked the camps.
SHEPHERDSVILLE - A local teenager went an extra mile in his shoes to make a generous donation.
Bryce Miles, who established 502 Sneak Geeks, a shoe swap organization, donated 50 pairs of new and gently-used shoes to the Shepherdsville Elementary Family Resource Center and Bullitt Lick Middle Youth Services Center.
KYKickFest, based in Lexington, recently hosted a shoe swap sneaker convention at Parquet Springs Conference Centre, with 502 Sneak Geeks as its headline sponsor.
SHEPHERDSVILLE—On her first day as an eighth grade geometry student, Chassidy Headley’s teacher did something that would stick with her students the rest of their lives: she connected geometry to the real world.
Years later, a now grown Headley hopes to connect to her seventh grade students the same way.
“I think, if we can make those connections, they might actually like it and might be more engaged,” the Bullitt Lick Middle teacher said.
