Micah Shively, 6th grade student at Taylor County Middle School, was the recipient of the TC Pride Award. Micah is the current State and National Beta Language Arts Winner! He represented Taylor County at the National Beta Convention in June and is the “exact example of a model TC Cardinal. He is caring, compassionate, and excels at everything he does.” He excels in academics, as well as being a leader. He participates in Cardinal Academy and is always looking for ways to be innovative.
Ryan Maynard, Eric Rogers, Natalie Reynolds, Raegan Mardis and Evan Humphress, all seniors at Taylor County High School, were also the recipients of the TC Pride Award for representing TCHS at the Governor’s Scholar Program over the summer. GSP is a summer residential program for outstanding high school students in Kentucky. Over 2,000 applications are received at the state level each year, with approximately 1,000 students selected to attend.
Barry McCubbin, Manager at Green River Plaza Kroger, was the recipient of the TC Partnership Award. Mr. McCubbin has worked closely with Cardinal Kroger at Taylor County High School to help continue the tradition of Cardinal Kroger being one of our strongest School-Based Enterprises. Just recently, Cardina Kroger students toured the Green River Plaza location to learn more about the company and the ins and outs of managing a large retail store. Mr. McCubbin has also helped Cardinal Kroger receive two new checkout lanes and new Point of Sales systems. Cardinal Kroger truly showcases the hard work of our students and it wouldn’t be possible without the help from Mr. McCubbin and other Kroger employees!
Taylor County School District would like to congratulate these individuals and thank them for their dedication to our students, schools, and community.
The district encourages all of our students, staff, and parents to nominate those people who are making a difference within our district. Nomination forms can be found on the district webpage and all four school webpages under Quick Links - TC Achievement Award Nomination.
