Preparing For A Global Society Preparing For A Global Society

Bourbon County High School and Bourbon County Middle School students were recipients of a powerful and informative program Tuesday when motivational speakers Devine Carama and Dr. Roger Cleveland spoke to them.  The program stressed the importance of words we use that might cause a negative impact to others. Dr. Cleveland also met with  all Bourbon County principals and district administrators at Central Office through the lunch hour. High School student, Landamin Landrum said, “It was a nice program with meaningful words to say”.  Preslee Barnett stated, “You know it had good impact when you see people tearing up. It was nice of them to come”. Malik Humble said, “Be a leader even when you think you can’t be one.” and Maggie Shelton said, Impacting words count”. The speakers made the students really think about the words they say before speaking them.

DANCEMAROON Dance Maroon 2018

DANCEMAROON is Bourbon County’s version of UK’s Dance Blue fundraising event for pediatric oncology. The event is scheduled for Friday, February 2nd from 4:00 to 10:00 PM at the high school. In order to participate, students have to raise a minimum of $20.  Michelle Patrick (BCHS) and Sue Ellen Ballard (BCMS) are the contacts for this event.

This six-hour dance marathon is considered a “mini” version of UK’s DanceBlue. DanceBlue is a 24-hour dance marathon fundraiser for the Golden Matrix Fund which was setup to benefit those treated at the DanceBlue Pediatric Oncology and Hematology Clinic at Kentucky Children’s Hospital.

Our dancers will be made up of BCHS and BCMS students and staff, as well as staff from our preschool and elementary schools. Students will need to submit at least $20, two weeks before the marathon (by January 18, 2018). Donation forms and money can be turned in to the student’s group advisor/team leader or to Mrs. Patrick at BCHS or Mrs. Ballard at BCMS. Checks for dancer fees can be made to UK DanceBlue (Corporate Sponsor/Partners who are helping with the event costs may make checks payable to BCHS)
