CAMPBELLSVILLE -- As the winter months come to a close, spring is on the horizon, and it is coming just in time for Campbellsville University’s Spring Break March 14-18.
Students and teachers will rush to beaches and vacation spots to enjoy this new season. However, instead of enjoying the warmer weather and relaxation, 30 CU students and faculty members are rushing to serve orphans, prison inmates and their fellow spring breakers.
Danita Cobble has been hired as the newest Technology Integration Specialist (TIS) for Bullitt County Public Schools. She joins current district TIS’ Keith Barnes, Christie Turbeville and Susan Vincentz.
“I am excited to be joining Bullitt County’s Technology department and getting in at the beginning of such an amazing transformation!” she said.
Nichols and Shepherdsville Elementary School special education teacher Jessica Smith is sacrificing her long locks of brunette hair (again) for cancer patients.
Smith has volunteered to have her head shaved during the annual St. Baldrick’s Foundation event Saturday, March 12 at Louisville Slugger Field. This will be the fourth time she has cut and donated her hair for cancer where it will become a wig as part of Locks of Love.
Who dresses as a box of crayons for the opening day of a school year?
Kaet Barron, that’s who. The Maryville Elementary School Counselor greeted students with the sign Orange You Glad to be Back in School? I’m Tickled Pink!
It should not come as a surprise then that Barron has been selected Kentucky’s Elementary School Counselor of the Year. She was honored Feb. 25th at the Kentucky School Counselors Association (KSCA) conference in Lexington.
LEBANON JUNCTION - She’s like the Frank Sinatra of Lebanon Junction Elementary. Or maybe the Bruce Springsteen.
New Jersey native Traci Moore has been a student favorite for 10 years as a fifth-grade teacher at LJES, cheering on her youngsters while also helping to coach the Bullitt Central High School cheerleading team with her husband, James.
The students and staff at LJES are now cheering for Moore, following her selection as the 2016-17 Bullitt County Elementary Teacher of the Year.
Lisa Lewis is the new grant writer for Bullitt County Public Schools. She began her duties Jan. 25th and has been busy meeting staff and researching funding opportunities which will directly impact students.
