Changes to the Agenda
Dan Bradley will be presenting the 2013 NCHS Track and Field video.
Nelson County Schools
Cheerleaders from Thomas Nelson High School recently attended cheer camp at the University of Kentucky. Six of the ladies from TNHS were chosen to try out for a team that will travel to London and represent the United States in the New Year's Eve parade. Samantha Nalley was chosen from over 1100 cheerleaders as one of the 30 girls to be a part of that team.
Last month, we saw a video from our Nelson County Community Based Work Transition Program. We are glad to announce that program was awarded a grant of $11,700 from the Kentucky Office of Vocational Rehabilitation. We are glad to have the state recognized the good work Ms. Harlowe and her students are doing to the extent that it translates to financial support!
We are also glad to announce that the district has been awarded $35,000 by the WHAS Crusade for Children. The money will be used to upgrade the playground space at the Early Learning Center and for a sensory room for students at Nelson County High School.
