Carroll County High student Kassidy Perry was among 23 students throughout the state selected by Kentucky State Police to participate in the “Drive to Stay Alive” academy. The program ran from Sept. 5-9 at KSP Headquarters in Frankfort.
The ‘Drive to Stay Alive’ program teaches the students safe driving techniques by KSP instructors with hands-on road driving and classroom exercises, including the dangers of driving impaired, seat belt safety, distracted and aggressive driving.
The whole reason I started cooking was my mother. She was a self-taught, brilliant cook who could effortlessly whip up any recipe with just a glance.
After years of eating and enjoying her food, I decided that I would give up these silly dreams of becoming a neurosurgeon and pursue a career in the hospitality industry.
I started out washing dishes at The Tasteful Chef in Ghent when I was 14 as a part-time job after school. I thought it was ironic that my first job cooking didn’t involve any actual cooking, but I figured everyone had to start somewhere.
