  • MCHS falls short on ACT scores

    ACT exam results show that Marion County High School students aren't taking the appropriate "core" courses before their junior and senior years and, as a result, they aren't fully prepared for college-level work.

    "One thing that has to be worked on is scheduling at the high school," Marion County Superintendent Dr. Chuck Hamilton said to school board members during their regular monthly meeting Tuesday of last week.

  • Board does not approve Lady Knights' basketball trips

    Approving trips and fundraisers is usually routine business at the Marion County Board of Education meetings, but it wasn't routine during its regular monthly meeting last week.

    When it was time to approve the overnight trips for the Lady Knights basketball team, Board Member Mike Cecil asked if there was a reason the paperwork was being turned in so early. The trips that were up for approval were trips to basketball tournaments in late December and January in Lexington, Mount Sterling and Louisville.

  • MCATC hires new principal

    Tuesday was Brandon Bardin's first official day as the new principal at the Marion County Area Technology Center.
    Bardin, a Columbia native, has spent the last 12 years being a welding instructor at the Green County Area Technology Center. But, he said he wanted to help students and staff from a different perspective, which is why he applied for the MCATC principal position after Tony Webb, who was hired in September of last year, resigned to become the principal at the Harrodsburg Area Technology Center.
