Reese Bardin is pictured with the "Goal Poster" for Adair County Primary Center's recent Pennies for Patients campaign to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The school set a goal of $3000 and topped it by raising $3,361.00 to donate to the group. This effort started for the school at Col. Wm. Casey three years ago when Blane Bardin, Reese's brother, was a first grader. Blane is a leukemia survivor and one of our own local heros. Thanks to Reese for keeping the spirit alive at ACPC now that Blane has moved on to ACES!! Thank you to all of our students, parents and community members who donated and supported this worthy cause. - Patty R. Jones, Principal, Adair County Primary Center, 158 Col.

Pat Darnell brings SMILE to students at Adair Co. Primary Center

As simple and rewarding as a smile is, you might assume they would be everywhere. But as we often hurry through our day, we just forget. The opportunity to create sunshine is lost in seconds. But "Miss Pat" inspires me - MARY ANN LOY

By Mary Anne Loy

Pat Darnell--or "Miss Pat" as the children know her--works at Adair County Primary Center. She does many things throughout the school day, but one of the most important things she does is SMILE. She's a natural. She conveys genuine goodwill with her kind, sparkling eyes and sweet, warm smile.

A smile seems like a simple thing. It requires little effort--just a few facial muscles are involved. It costs absolutely nothing. And it takes no time. You can meet a person and smile without ever breaking stride.

Decade of Dominance: ACHS A-Team wins 10th district title

'On top of the accomplishment itself, the team has won District by large overall points margins in recent years despite a steady climb across the state in the level of academic competition overall. In fact, Adair is the only school south of Louisville and west of Lexington that has ever accomplished this feat. This year's competitors in Quick Recall were Timothy Watson, Brittany Curry, Rebecca Montgomery, Eli Jackson, Zane Sanders, Courtney Green, Treyton Grant, Austin Bradshaw, Benjamin Hancock, and Erwin Ruczienski. The Future Problem Solving Team consists of Jessi Taylor, Amber Turner, Wes Stone, and Benjamin Hancock.' - Excerpt from story.

News from Adair County School District

The Adair County High School Academic Team won the 2015 Governor’s Cup District Championship on Saturday, January 24, for the 10th year in a row. The competition took place at Green County High School, and the Quick Recall team swept through each round of Quick Recall undefeated. In addition, the Future Problem Solving team—a perennial world championship qualifier—swept all judges’ top rankings for 1st Place in their competition.

The feat of ten straight District titles engraves Adair County in the record books among few other teams at the high school level. Coach Brett Reliford commented about the accomplishment, "These kids have so much to be proud of, along with the school and past participants who started and continued this streak. They are part of a legacy that has come with a lot of hard work, time, dedication, and trust in each other and trust in their coach that the system works. This was no 10-year fluke."

Breakthroughs for Circuit Clerks' Organ Donation program

Last year, 103 unselfish persons were able to save 332 lives. 'When you get your license or state ID, we ask if you would like to donate $1 to increase public education about the mission of organ donation in Kentucky. We also ask if you wish to be a registered organ donor. Every person who says 'yes' gives hope to all those patients on the waiting list' - Adair Circuit Clerk Dennis Loy

By Stephanie Grooms
Kentucky Trust for Life

The Circuit Court Clerks of Kentucky made 2014 a momentous year in the fight to save lives. With 998 Kentuckians on the waiting list for an organ transplant, there is no better time to join the Kentucky Organ Donor Registry.

In 2014, 103 unselfish individuals in Kentucky were able to save 332 lives, and many more individuals were able to enhance someone's life or give sight to hundreds more through tissue and cornea donation. Still more than 124,000 patients are currently waiting for their organ transplant. Tragically, each day 21 lose their fight and their lives, waiting. Kentucky's Circuit Clerks are determined to make a difference and change that number.
