  • George awarded Simpson scholarship

    Friends of Butler awarded the Sam Simpson Scholarship to Jonathan Marsh George Jr. The organization donated $250, and Simpson’s wife Jeanne matched the amount, totaling $500.

  • Rohrer promoted to top spot at Cartmell

    There is a new but very familiar face in the Cartmell Elementary School’s principal office as Jeanie Rohrer took over the position effective July 1, when former principal Jonica Ray became elementary instructional supervisor for Carroll County Schools.

    Rohrer has seemingly come full circle as her start in education was as the administrative assistant to Cindy Warrick, the first JCTC Carrollton campus coordinator when the campus first opened in 1989. “You could forget the job titles back then. We did it all,” she said.

After graduating in 1990, she immediately started teaching at OCHS and taught chemistry, as well as other science classes. She earned her master’s degree and Rank I at University of Louisville.
