Taylor County School District was honored to host the Campbellsville/ Taylor County Chamber of Commerce monthly luncheon on Thursday, February 13, 2020. The chamber had a record turnout of over 150 people!
Several of our school-based enterprises and clubs were set up in Citizens Bank Arena and our students and club sponsors met with the visitors before they sat down to lunch. A special thank you to the following enterprises and clubs: Fancy That, Cardinal Corral, Art, Floral Design, (Agriculture), Pre-Engineering/ Woodworking, Student Technology Leadership Program (STLP), Cardinal Kroger, Taylor County Bank’s Cardinal Financial Center, Cosmetology, College and Career Readiness, and Caring for Kids.
The Taylor County Primary Center and Taylor County Intermediate School Student Lighthouse Teams helped greet visitors as they entered! They also had the honor of leading The Pledge of Allegiance before the luncheon began.
The Taylor County Middle School Youth Leadership Team gave the blessing before the meal. They also helped pass out Gifts of Appreciation to the chamber winners! We would like to give a special thank you to the Taylor County groups that donated Gifts of Appreciation: Fancy That - gift certificate to their boutique, CK-Prep - gift certificates to their store, Cardinal Corral - two loaves of homemade sourdough bread, Floral Design/ Agriculture - a beautiful Valentine’s bouquet, and the Taylor County High School Boys Golf Team - signed golf balls by the back-to-back State Champions!
Entertainment during the luncheon included music from the Jazz Band (thank you Mr. Stephen Bishop and students), songs from The Barbershop Quartet’s Singing Valentines (thank you Mr. Jericho McCoy and students Landon Rodenberg, Codie Allen, and Lea Corbin), and a solo from TCHS Drama Club’s production of “Footloose,” “Holding Out for a Hero,” sang by Riley Phillips (thank you Mrs. Karen McAnelly).
The delicious meal was catered by Taylor County High School’s Cardinal Corral (thank you Mrs. Deana Shewmaker and Mrs. Kathy Begley). There was also a “throwback homage” of square pizza and corn provided by Taylor County Food Services (thank you Mrs. Kathy Phelps).
Following Mr. Higdon’s speech that focused on workforce development and community partnership, guests were invited to tour the Central Kentucky Career Academy. There, they toured and learned more about the career technical programs that are offered or will be offered soon including Nursing, Phlebotomy, Welding, Central Kentucky Marketing Prep (CK-Prep), IT and HVAC.
We are so proud of our students, staff members, teachers, administrators, and club sponsors who made the Chamber Luncheon such a success! We were honored to host so many community members and businesses who support our students and district on a daily basis and who truly help build a stronger community.
