  • District works to attract more minorities to teaching ranks

        SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The Bullitt County Public School System currently has 8 percent minority students of its pupil population of roughly 13,000.
        And, in terms of staff members, that minority number is only 2 percent.
        But the school district’s quest to recruit more minorities to the classroom has nothing to do with numbers or percentages.
        Instead, it is part of the district’s mission to better prepare its students for a global society.

  • Central’s Amos signs to cheer for Hilltoppers

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – Football or cheerleading.

    Bullitt Central senior Josh Amos will be the first to admit that a few years ago he would have said that he would be playing football in college, but sometimes life gets in the way of those dreams.

    A few injuries took football out of the option and as a senior Amos had started cheering at Bullitt Central, a pretty common occurrence at the school. That opened new doors and Amos stepped through, signing to be a cheerleader at Western Kentucky University.
