So proud of you Brett, you'll never know! When someone's spirit is as good as yours, great things will always happen. This couldn't happen for a better kid or family!

This is two pieces of great news out of Greene County Schools on Thursday. A new, deserving, and capable superintendent in Andrea Whitmarsh and an outstanding student in Brad. Way to go everyone!

Read up on Torch Scholars - a program for first generation students who show great potential through actions that help others.

I think the bigger notation is that someone with your mentality would never even figure out how to open the application.

And for the Shifflett that left the nasty comment don't hate on others because they choose to put the work in to succeed.
