    Over the course of the next week or so, school officials will be working on ways to bring all classes into compliance.

    While most of the faces have changed, you could get the sense of uneasiness.

    On this particular night, the Southeast Bullitt Fire Protection District board was to set a tax rate for the coming year.

  • Looking to inspire lives as a journalist

     While attending class at Bullitt East High School sometime around 2008, a teacher asked us if anybody knew what our great-great-great grandparents did during their lives. 

    When none of us knew, he asked us what we would do to ensure our great-great-great grandchildren knew what we did with our lives. 

    And so I had a question to answer: what did I want to be known for 100 years from now?

    The answer was easy: I wanted to be the girl that helped inspire others to do great things with their lives.
