A Shelby County youth student is one of two Kentucky high school students that just returned from spending a week at the nation’s capital.
Cyrus “Cy” Dutton IV of Shelbyville and Samuel Miller of Prospect were chosen from across the state to be part of the group of 104 student delegates who attended the program’s 53rdannual Washington Week March 7-14.
The U.S. Senate Youth Program comes with a $5,000 scholarship from the Hearst Foundation.
The following Shelby County Area Technology Center students were awarded the Student of the Month for January: Chris Rogers, business technology; Courtney Najjar, health science informatics; Janelle Hynes, health science; Austin Egbert, automotive; Madison Cheak, information technology; Brent Abild, machine tool; Madelyn Weeks, math/English.
“Talk about being a lucky dog! I’ve never seen such a gigantic yard sale, Chloe!” I told my sister, happy that Mom told us we could walk around the neighborhood as long as we stayed on the sidewalk and didn’t cross the street. Three houses down, we saw cars parked everywhere, men admiring farm equipment, children playing with toys, and women oohing and aahing at sparkling jewelry.
“It’s not a yard sale, fella’,” a sweet voice said, after hearing my comment to Chloe.
