C6 THE NEWS-ENTERPRISE BLUEGRASS SCHOOLS MONDAY, MARCH 12, 2012 JOHN HARDIN Williamson named Cadet of the Month Wild Wild West Each month the John Hardin High School JROTC selects one cadet who exemplifies what the program stands for and what it teaches young citizens. During February, one cadet stood out among the rest as a great leader and team member. The cadet chain of command recommended and the cadet battalion commander selected Cadet Pvt. 1st Class Elizabeth Williamson as the February Cadet of the Month. Elizabeth maintains a 3.5 grade-point average and participates in the JROTC rifle team. Asked about cadet of the month, Williamson responded, “There is no point in succeeding if you don’t put a little effort into it.” WILLIAMSON Bluegrass Middle School students in Ms. Todd's fifth-period class created board games about westward expansion.

Joy Curriera, a division chief in the U.S. Army Human Resources Command’s The Adjutant General Directorate, or TAGD, speaks to the sev-enth-grade girls of T.K. Stone Middle School during a young women’s conference at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College. Center, Sherry Coomer of StepWorks Addiction Treatment gives tips on leadership skills. Right, Detective Kelly Slone of the Elizabethtown Police Department shares her experiences. Girls learn to deal with adversity and more at conference You go, GIRL. These encouraging words are actually the name of a young women’s conference recently held at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College for seventh-graders from T.K. Stone Middle School. “GIRL” stands for Girls In Roles as Leaders. Now in its seventh year, the conference was designed to mirror women’s conferences. It had various speakers and was complete with programs with the agenda, tablecloths, centerpieces, a continental breakfast, a catered luncheon and even printed napkins similar to what you might find at a wedding reception. “The conference tells you that you should be confident and be a leader, not just sit back and let someone else lead you,” said 12-year-old participant Ana Curry. “It teaches you that you can do what you want; you don’t have to do what your friends do. You can try something new for a change,” she said. Susan Ryan, Elizabethtown Independent Schools’ coordinator for the gifted program, was the lunchtime speaker. Ryan is a cancer survivor who was 26 with a husband and a 1-year-old when cancer struck. Her talk focused on triumphing over adversity. Round-robin sessions were given on career choices, leadership, healthy relationships and Internet safety. Cherise Mingus of Lindsey Wilson College’s Career Services Office used an assessment to determine the girls’ personality traits. “I want students to understand who they are. Characteristics and skills can translate into practical skills in the workplace,” she said. “Certain skills are more valuable in certain occupations than in others.” The girls also participated in a leadership and team-building session Sarah Vaughn of Elizabethtown’s Advocacy and Support Center handled the delicate subject of relationships and other topics young girls are curious about, such as personal hygiene, by having the girls put their anonymous questions into a fishbowl “so they feel comfortable asking me anything their hearts desire.” Lessons from Detective Kelly Slone, of Elizabethtown Police Department, can help keep girls safe. Slone told stories from her experience, including being on the scene after a serious accident that occurred because the driver was texting. The detective’s session was about more than safety; it was about success in career fields traditionally associated with men. The keynote speaker was Lt. Col. Joy Curriera, who is chief of the Army Personnel Records Division under the U.S. Army Human Resources Command’s The Adjutant General Directorate, or TAGD. Curriera, who graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, offered her perspective on the potential of all women. Curriera said it’s crucial to learn how to deal with adversity — figuring out how that adversity affected you and those around you. “That helps you decide how to come out of it,” she said. “Your ability to come out of it is resilience – the capacity to overcome adversity.” Resilience is only one of many positive characteristics girls can nurture in themselves. However, the girls choose the characteristics they want to develop. “Come out of your comfort zone, and create opportunities for yourself,” Curriera said. “It’s up to you. Don’t let others bring you down.” By the same token, the girls must not bring other people down, Curriera said. John Hardin JROTC Air Rifle Team excels in competitions The John Hardin High School JROTC Air Rifle team has been doing very well this year competing in three major matches over the last three months. On Dec. 17, the team competed in the first an-nual Tri-State Air Rifle Match, winning first place in the Sporter Team Category against 17 schools form Kentucky, Indiana and Michigan. The first place finish at the Tri-State Competition qualified the team for the the national competition at Camp Perry, Ohio. The winning team consisted of Cadets Michael McLarney (who also placed first in the Individual Sporter Category with a score of 530 out of 600 points), Lydia Loehmer, Michael Murphy and Johannesburg Boulware. In addition, JHHS’ team of first-year shooters also did well placing third in the Sporter Team Category. First year team members included Cadet’s Meredith Cox, Ethan George, Darren Cruz, and Nathaniel Shotton. The following John Hardin High School students were named to the Honor Roll for the second trimester of the 2011-12 school year.
