  • Panther homecoming has something for everyone

    Nadena MaHoney, transportation director of the Carroll County School District, stood ankle deep in mud and grimaced just before she plopped down in the goopy pit with nine other bus drivers lined up together, all bursting in laughter. 

    “The Haulers,” the team name of the bus drivers, were sitting in mud and digging their heels in to prepare for their first challenger in the Mud Tug, a tug-o-war in which the competitors are seated. The drivers, teachers, and students who participated all got dirty for a good cause.

  • Retired teachers group donates to Family Ties

    The Carroll County Retired Teachers Association recently applied for a 2012-13 Kentucky Retired Teachers Association community/school services projects grant.

    CCRTA was awarded this grant with the only stipulation being that the local had to match the grant with its funds.

    All of the funds in the treasury come from dues paid by the members. The more retired educators that pay their dues, the more money in the treasury. This grant could be used for school supplies and/or food items.
