    Did board of education complete an exhaustive search?

     

    Before I begin let me offer two disclaimers.

    The first is I think Donny Poston is a fine, Christian man. My next disclaimer is my children attend the Christian Academy of Campbell County.

    That being said the Campbell County Board of Education didn’t appear to conduct a truly exhaustive search in its quest for the next director of schools.

    A Teacher Affects Eternity

     

    One of my favorite quotes about educators is by the late historian, Henry B. Adams, who once said, “A teacher affects eternity - he can never tell where his influence stops.”  Of course, “he” and “his” are gender-neutral.

  • Where we stand

     National crime victims’ rights week is this week. There are many layers involved once a crime occurs.

  • For the children

    April is Child Abuse Awareness month and to honor child abuse victims, blue ribbons are currently being displayed all around our community. But, have you ever wondered what the meaning of the blue ribbon really is?

    The Blue Ribbon Campaign began in Virginia in 1989 when a grandmother, Bonnie W. Finney, tied a blue ribbon to the antenna of her van “to make people wonder.”  The story she told to inquisitive community members was a tragic story about the abuse of her grandchildren, which ultimately led to the brutal death of her grandson.
