News from Cindy Lackey, Pride organization

Shellie Kendall, Campbellsville, KY, has been hired as the Pride (Personal Responsibility in a Desirable Environment) Environmental Education Liaison to visit classrooms in Taylor County and Campbellsville Independent Schools. She will lead hands-on activities designed to prepare students for state science tests and life-long environmental stewardship.

She was hired through the Pride Environmental Education Outreach Program.

The program targets third, fourth and fifth-grade classes, with an emphasis on fourth-graders, who take the annual state science test. Examples of topics covered by the program's liaisons include native plants and energy conservation.

Pride offers the program in 38 counties of southern and eastern Kentucky. In each county, local leaders pay a fee, based on student population, to enroll their schools. During the 2010-2011 school year, 19 counties enrolled in the program, and liaisons reached 26,796 students.

The enrollment fee for the 2011-2012 school year was paid the Taylor County Fiscal Court, City of Campbellsville, Taylor County Schools, Campbellsville Independent Schools and Taylor County Conservation District.

A native of Taylor County, Kendall learned conservation and respect for nature growing up on a family farm. She is a beef cattle and crop farmer. She also is a substitute teacher for Taylor County Schools. -(Pride)
