The $1,000 drawing will be held again at the end of the school year to see who wins $1,000 for both the certified and classified staff during the second semester, so more employees have a chance at winning. In addition, one employee with perfect attendance for both semesters in a combined random drawing will receive $2,000.

FFA and friends donated to the tornado relief efforts FFA and friends donated supplies for tornado relief

After the tornadoes hit Western Kentucky, many citizens lost their lives or belongings. Like other organizations the local Wayne County High School FFA chapter wanted to do their part in helping those affected. They put together donations from a list sent in by Taylor County Extension Office on the agriculture related items needed to start the repair of farms lost or damaged in the storms.

Several local businesses like the CO-OP donated items, and other supporters like Mary Ruth Upchurch donated money that will be a major help in repairing our neighbors and strengthening their process of rebuilding. Donations were available for drop off on Wednesday through Friday last week at Agriculture Teacher Justin Horton’s gate at the Area Technology Center. All items were sent to Taylor County on December 20th.
