Alumni Words of Wisdom

 

Barren County Alumni- the success of our Alumni Association depends on YOU!
    
Our association is slowly growing, but through your input and assistance we could become a major strength for Barren County Schools.  It is always great to reminisce about our school days-friends, ballgames, club meetings, after school get-togethers, teachers, and even more fun to get together for class reunions and catch up with our class mates.  We need you to identify classmates and family members who could join our Association and increase our membership base.  As graduates of Barren County High, Austin Tracy, Hiseville, Park City , and Temple Hill we should have at least a thousand members.  This would allow the Association to provide additional scholarships, provide a directory to keep in touch with classmates & friends and provide additional programs for the membership.  On the website is information about this year's great Hall of Honor inductees, we know there are many more Barren County Alumni  who have excelled in their professions.  Our Hall of Honor selection committee needs your assistance in identifying outstanding alumni worthy of this recognition.   

     I know that many of you enjoy the magazine we produce and the section spotlighting alumni.  We would like to expand this section.  If you know of an individual who should be spotlighted, send their name and address or e-mail address it to Jackie Nuckols, at Barren County High School, 507 Trojan Trail, Glasgow, KY 42141 or e-mail her at jackie.nuckols@barren.kyschools.us.
     Please join me in identifying and soliciting new members so we can ensure the future and success of the Barren County Alumni Association!

Sincerely,
Bud Tarry

 

 

Words from our  Superintendent- Bo Matthews
 
     I was born and raised in Barren County, and I graduated from Barren County Schools.  So, I can tell you that I have an extremely strong sense of pride for this community and our school district.  Our Barren County Alumni Association membership is made up of people like you and me who share that sense of pride for this community and our school district.  Our Barren County Alumni Association membership is made up of people like you and me who share that sense of pride, and the Alumni Association is here to showcase this sense of pride and the storied Barren County School District tradition for not only its current members but for the future members to come.
     The Alumni Association has been very visible in demonstrating its support for the current membership by hosting events like the Hall of Honor and creating the first ever Alumni Room located in the gymnasium at Barren County High School.  It also demonstrates its support for the current student body by being visible at various community events, as well as creating many student opportunities and valuable scholarships.
      I think you will agree when I say that the Barren County Alumni Association is a vital part of our school district.  My personal view is that it signifies that our district is among an elite group of prestigious public school districts in the state that places a high priority on education, history and tradition.  As they say in sports, it's a game changer for our community.  So, I invite you to show your pride and make the move to join our Barren County Alumni Association.  WE ARE BC!
