NICHOLS - Bullitt County’s smallest school is saying goodbye to one of its biggest supporters.
Nichols Elementary principal Sheri Hamilton is retiring after five years at the school, 32 years overall with the Bullitt County Public Schools system. She has also served as BCPS pre-school coordinator during her time at Nichols.
The long resume is impressive for someone who had intentions of remaining a stay-at-home mom.
Brenda Pirtle is the new Assistant Superintendent for Student Learning.
She succeeds former administrator Greg Schultz as he becomes Oldham County Schools Superintendent.
“I am thrilled and honored to be named the Assistant Superintendent of the 7th largest district in the state,” she said. “I know that I have some big shoes to fill as I follow Greg Schultz. He is an amazing leader.”
BROOKS -- In October, Lydia Flowers will embark on the journey of her lifetime.
Flowers, 23, will visit 11 countries in 11 months as part of Adventures in Mission’s World Race program.
After receiving her masters degree in social work from Campbellsville University in May, Flowers returned to her home in Shepherdsville to work as a foster parent supervisor at New Hope Foster Homes. Because Flowers said she felt like she was getting her life together, she ignored the idea of mission work.
