Edmonson Voice Staff Report:
SEES, Kyrock, and the Edmonson County 5/6 Center have begun hosting an array of activities during "Red Ribbon Week," which teaches to avoid drugs and make positive decisions. The annual event began Monday, Oct 23, and will run through Halloween next week.
Kyrock Elementary hosted Trooper Jeremy Hodges on Monday, Tony Rose from D93 on Tuesday, and Deputy Jordan Jones and K9 Unit Tango on Thursday morning.
Schools presented treats to all students during the events and there were school spirit contests throughout the week at the schools.
D93's Tony Rose spoke to Kyrock and 5/6 Students about the dangers of bullying, which got a positive response from the students and facility.
"The kids here in Edmonson County are always great," said Rose. "It's always an honor when I'm invited to the local schools. Kyrock and the 5/6 Center were awesome this week."
Sheriff Shane Doyle spoke to several classes this morning about the importance of making good decisions and gave several examples that allowed the students to interact with him. The Sheriff picked today's winners in the dress up contest.
SEES also hosted Deputy Jones and Tango, along with Trooper Jeremy Hodges and hosted much of the same activities as Kyrock and the 5/6 Center.
