Education

  • Sunday set for seniors to walk the line

     SHEPHERDSVILLE - Maybe it’s global warming, but high school graduation for Bullitt County Public Schools has been delayed due to snow.

    Students can’t graduate prior to the last day of classes, and numerous school-day cancellations led to the later date.
