  • JROTC rappel tower dedicated with style

    It was three years in the making, but Grant County High School now is one of three schools in the state to have a rappelling tower.

    The process started when Sgt. Major Charles Duffee first came to Grant County High School to help start a junior ROTC program.

    “When superintendent Michael Hibbett was hired, I asked him to consider building the tower,” Duffee said. “He unequivocally thought it was a good idea and that he would support it so the students would have a training apparatus that would instill confidence and attention to detail.”

  • Williamstown to hold open house on Nov. 9

    Williamstown Independent School will have an open house from 2 to 4 p.m. on Nov. 9.

    The open house will feature the new additions and renovations, school and classroom tours, student/staff “smart” technology demonstrations and refreshments. A recognition of the distinguished “CATS” students will be from 4 to 5 p.m. in the gym. All parents, community and alumni are invited.

  • Grant County marches to 8th place finish

    Grant County Marching Band earned the opportunity to compete in KMEA Semi-final Competition on Nov. 1. Grant County competed along side of 15 other 4A bands, all aiming for those final four slots to advance to Finals Competition that evening.

    Taking the field at 11:45 a.m., Grant County entertained the crowd with its show, “Scenes from Nippon” for the last time this season. Grant County ended another great season finishing eighth in state.

  • DRE plans veterans program

    Dry Ridge Elementary will honor WWII veterans this year. The program is at 9 a.m. on Nov. 11 with donuts and juice at 8:30 a.m. for the veterans. All veterans are invited to attend.

  • Noteworthy: Deadline for holiday sign ups is Nov. 14

    Families who need a helping hand this holiday season have until Nov. 14 to sign up at their school’s family resource center.

    Parents or guardians should contact the school where their child or children attend to register and receive participation information.

    The deadline has passed to sign up at Crittenden-Mount Zion Elementary, but names are still being taken at Dry Ridge, Sherman, Mason-Corinth, Grant County Middle and Grant County High School.
