Education

  • Draper awarded scholarship for auto body work

    Heather Draper isn’t afraid to take on the boys. “They all got mad because I finished first in the class.” Draper, a senior at Grant County High School, said about the boys in her auto body class at Boone County vocational school.

    Draper said she notices that auto body finishing is normally a male dominated field and it is more difficult for women to advance. “I have to work harder to prove myself.” Draper said. And, that’s just what she did.

  • Adjustment to all-day kindergarten going well

    The project started with the talking phase in November with actual paint to wall in February.
