Bell Central Board Recognition

The Bell County Board of Education and Superintendent Yvonne Gilliam took time at Tuesday’s board meeting to recognize the middle school teachers at Bell Central and principal Jennifer Blankenship. It was announced earlier this year that Bell Central Middle School earned a 5 star rating and ranked second among all middle schools in the state of Kentucky.

“We are truly, truly proud of you. Thank you so much,” Gilliam said. “Not only is this an award for you, can you imagine what it’s like being in that school and knowing you’re number two in the state of Kentucky? Look what you did for your kids. I think that’s the most rewarding thing you’ll get out of this is knowing what you did for those students. Congratulations again.”
