  • Thanks to board members

    As a citizen of Bullitt County, I’m extremely proud of the students and teachers, the administrators and the service workers who are the heart and soul of the Bullitt County Public School System. I’m also proud of the district leadership this community has put in place through the members of the Bullitt County Board of Education.

For the second year, CASA Board member, and First Federal employee, Susan Bradbury led efforts for all three Bullitt County First Federal locations to help our children through “CASA Angel Trees.” This was extremely helpful to the children and families involved with CASA.

        The question is whether the state of financial affairs is that great or is there just a reason for concern.

  • Making recipes more healthy

     Trying to eat healthy during the holidays can seem impossible. 

  • Three initiatives to watch in Bullitt County Schools

     This month, I want to bring our community up-to-date on three of our ongoing projects that we believe will improve the performance of our students in the long-term, increase the college and work readiness rate, and eventually decrease our drop-out rate.
