MOUNT WASHINGTON—No current teacher has taught in Bullitt County longer than Lauren Burress.

The Eastside Middle teacher laughed as she tells the story of how she found out: a paycheck didn’t go through and the powers at be couldn’t figure out what went wrong with the automated system…until they saw the program was set to deliver the checks to current teachers from 1987 and beyond.

“They didn’t realize anyone was still teaching in the county from before then,” she said.
