SHEPHERDSVILLE - It’s unusual, even rare, but not impossible. For those involved, it’s even kind of special. A handful of Bullitt County Public Schools’ students, and one teacher, share a common birthday on Feb. 29, also known as Leap Year Day.
LEXINGTON, KY – Overdale Elementary School parent, Jennifer Toll of Shepherdsville, was one of 30 parents from across Kentucky who graduated from the Commonwealth Institute for Parent Leadership focused on science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
An initiative of the Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence, this program is designed and implemented in partnership with the Carol Martin Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science and The Center for Gifted Studies at Western Kentucky University.
NICHOLS - The pilot is Bill Hale, a Bullitt County resident who suddenly passed away in October 2010.
The plane is a 1976 model Antonov An-2, the world’s largest of its kind, according to Hale’s son-in-law, Mike Russell. It will travel to Crestview, Fla., purchased by Vertol Systems Company (VSC) in nearby Destin.
Hale, a Bullitt County resident for 20 years, last flew the plane 14 years ago. It has been resting in a field on Hale’s property since the last flight.
Bullitt High School sophomore Phillip Burress has earned a 2011 YMCA Youth Character Award.
Phillip was nominated for the honor by Eastside Middle School teacher Sarah Mills. He received a trophy, certificate and $500 during an award dinner in the Crystal Ballroom at the Brown Hotel in Louisville.
