The 2015 Kentucky Derby Festival Regional Spelling Bee was held at the Barren County Extension Office on Thursday, Feb. 12th.  Fifteen students who had won their local school level spelling bee competed for the regional title.  After 9 rounds of competition, Ashley Wright, an eighth grade student from Barren County Middle School was determined to be the winner.  This is not the first time Ashley has won this title.  She was also the regional champion last year and competed in the state level competition.  Angelia Pulliam, a sixth grade student from Temple Hill was declared as the 1st Runner Up for the event.  The winning word which Ashley spelled correctly was bureaucracy.  

Spirit Day February 16th

Monday is the next College and Career dress day as well as President's day. So dress for success by wearing a college shirt, a career related outfit, or a bowtie like many of our presidents. Just last week, our Senators created a resolution for Bow Tie Day stating the "hope that every man and woman across this Commonwealth can experience the aesthetic pleasure of wearing a well-crafted and fashionable bow tie." BC is college and career ready!
