Edmonson County Judge Executive Wil Cannon has signed a proclamation for Tuesday, April 4, 2017 as National Service Recognition Day in Edmonson County.
Judge Cannon met with Steven Bliss, a 2008 graduate of ECHS and a graduate of the University of Kentucky. Bliss serves ECHS as a Kentucky College Coach for Americorps. The organization helps students prepare for life after high school in a number of ways, such as: pushing higher education, vocational school, auto mechanic certification, and four-year degrees.
Bliss said that AmericaCorps also gives back to local communities by leading service projects that help local food banks, humane societies, and others.
The proclamation stated that it "encouraged residents to recognize the positive impact of national service n our county; to thank those who serve, and to find ways to give back to their communities."
