The 2022 LC Homecoming is in the books and was a huge success! A big thank you to all the LC Schools, teachers, and staff for all their hard work during homecoming week! At LCHS, homecoming week began with a book drive and coin drive. The donated K-8 level books are going to help with several Leslie County School libraries that were destroyed during the floods. The book drive will continue through Thursday, September 8th, 2022, and can be dropped off at LCHS. The coin drive proceeds will go toward counties that were also affected by Eastern Kentucky flooding. The sophomore class won the book drive, but all classes each received 200 points for their enormous contributions to the coin drive. On Wednesday, LCHS students participated in gym day activities and competitions. Some of the activities included class vs class dodgeball games, a Fear Factor eating contest, three legged races, and more. On Thursday, field day activities were held at the Jim Varney football stadium. These activities included the mile race, metered races, a pie eating contest, football kick and throw, tug of war, and much more. The total points that were distributed from previous activities going into Friday’s spirit day were as follows: Sophomore Class- 1595, Senior Class- 1585, Junior Class- 1445, and Freshmen Class- 1280. Finally on Friday, spirit day competitions were held in the heavily decorated LCHS gymnasium. There wasn’t a bare wall to be found. Students class signs were everywhere, in perfect LC Homecoming fashion. As the students competed to win the spirit stick, it was amazing to watch them cheer for each other. A sophomore student, Gibson Thompson also helped a fellow junior student, Dustin Moore when his guitars strings broke during the talent portion of the program. Thompson loaned Moore his guitar to finish his talent session. It is moments like these, that bring out so much LC pride! In conclusion of Friday’s spirit day activities, these were the winners of the event categories. The fight song winners were 1stplace Senior Class, 2nd place Junior Class, and 3rd place Freshmen Class. The talent winners were 1st place Sophomore Class, 2nd place Senior Class, and 3rd place Freshmen Class. The skit winners were 1st place Sophomore Class, 2nd place Senior Class, and 3rd place Junior Class. All LCH classes performed great fight songs, talent, and skits. However, the overall class winner of the Spirit Stick for the 2022 LC Homecoming was the Sophomore Class! Congratulations! And like everyone says, “No one does homecoming like Lawrence County!” Till next year!

New LMS Teachers & Staff!! Ms. Chelsea Maynard is an ELA Instructor for LMS. Ms. Maynard states, “I am so excited and happy to be teaching 8th Grade Literature/Reading at LMS! I attended Marshall University where I earned my Bachelor's in Creative Writing and Teaching Certification in English grades 5 - 12. While I have experience teaching reading and writing from the preschool level up to the college level, I LOVE teaching the pre-teen and teenage ages. Every morning, I wake up excited to come to work because I get to spend my day with some of my favorite people — my students. By being their teacher, I get to celebrate their best moments with them and support them through their toughest moments, and there is nothing else I would rather do. Getting to laugh with them (and sometimes cry with them) is a blessing. When I'm not teaching or spending time with my family, I'm playing video games, swimming (if it's summer), or reading. I fell in love with reading and the places it can take you at an early age, and I'm excited to share that love with my students as their reading teacher.” Ms. Elizabeth Berry is a cook/baker for LMS. She has also been a bus monitor since 2019. Ms. Berry says, “Working in the kitchen and getting to feed these babies is the best part of my day!” Mr. Adam Cornette is an 8th grade teacher at LMS.

I graduated from Morehead State University in 2020 and recently completed my master’s degree in Teacher Leadership from the University of the Cumberland’s. I love the 8th-grade students. They come to class ready to learn, and their drive amazes me." Ms. Megan Spillman is a special education teacher at Louisa Middle School. Ms. Spillman is a graduate of Lawrence County Schools.
