A Night Under The Stars 2018 Bourbon County High School Prom Court

The Bourbon County High School Prom was held at the

Thoroughbred Center in Lexington this year. Although

it was a rainy evening, the rain helped to cool the arena

for a confortable prom night. The DJ for the evening was

Shane Mattox with a special live performance by Matthew

Dampier on the drums and Jake Ballard singing and

playing the keyboard.


This year’s prom theme was “A Night Under The Stars”. The

four hour event began at 7:00 pm and ended at 11:00 pm with

the crowning of the king and queen at 10:30. The prom candidates

were introduced individually just before the crowning by

Principal Kerrie Katz. This year’s king and queen was Jeremy

Moran and Maddy Beheler. The prom attendees voted for the

king and queen as they entered the prom. This was a great beginning

 to the end of the year events for our seniors.

School Violence is Addressed at Bourbon High School Bourbon County High School students moment of silence

April 20th was a Special Day for Bourbon County High School.  Rather than a walk out, the students and staff planned a day of school shooting awareness. The day was the 19 year anniversary of the Columbine school shooting. The day began with an assembly in the gym as a memorial to all students and staff who have been lost to school violence. Five seniors each read an account of a different school shooting.These students were Kathryn Wade, Hayley Hill, Tyler Treilobs, Aaron Poe and Mick  Seither. Random students were given colored cards as they entered the gym and were asked to stand to represent victims of the various schools. A video of a school shooting survivor was also a part of the program.  After assembly students had the option to stay for a voluntary prayer.  Second period was a panel of four seniors giving different view of gun control and gun involvement in schools. The panel consisted of Aaron Poe, Jacob Bailey, Riley Alexander and Matthew Dampier moderated by Mick Seither. A period followed  in the cafeteria in which students could write letters to representatives about gun control and its place in the school building. Another session  was in the library to duscuss Gun laws in the school setting. A session on Kindness and Individual Impact on Bourbon County High School was in the auditorium followed by a session on school safety.
