STANFORD - Good things happen in Lincoln County schools after students are dismissed for the day. Some students stay behind to brush up on their archery skills, others to play on the Playstation or wear fatigues in a Junior Cadet program.
No matter what 21st Century activity they choose to participate in, students in the after-school program have fun while learning, and their progress has earned the program statewide recognition.
The Lincoln County 21st Century program, named INVEST, was recognized Friday in Louisville at the Kentucky Community Education Association conference for having the best after-school program in the state. It received a plaque for effective dedication in furthering students' education after school.
Wayne Thurman, director of INVEST, said the plaque and recognition was well-deserved by the Lincoln County program, now in its second year.
