Working with Head Start students at Maryville Elementary School has been a joy for both Amber Wells and the youth.
“I love being around the kids and seeing them make progress,” she said as student after student approached to show her a classroom object. “This is where I want to be now.”
Wells zipped through an intensive program in only two months during the summer of 2014 to earn a Child Development Associate certification. The process was new for those desiring to work in a Head Start setting.
The Bullitt County Genealogical Society held its December 2014 meeting and luncheon at Ridgway Memorial Library as a roast for the Bullitt County History Museum director who stepped down as of Oct. 31.
The dinner was hosted by History Museum volunteer Daniel Buxton, with guest speakers including Joe Hardesty with the Louisville Free Public Library, Stephen Thomas from The Pioneer News, and Strange's wife, Bonnie.
