CMS leadership students learn about local government

Campbellsville Middle School leadership students recently learned about local government.

 

The eighth-graders participated in Campbellsville University’s leadership program to learn about teamwork, leadership, community service and more.

 

At a recent event, the students learned about government from several local leaders.

 

Taylor County Clerk Mark Carney said people have to come to his office many times, such as when they get married, buy a home or car and register to vote.

 

Carney said he enjoys his job because he helps people of his community, who are ultimately his bosses because they elect him.

 

He said it’s never too early to dream about the future, and encouraged students to work hard to make their dreams come true.

 

Green County Judge/Executive John Frank told the group that he oversees county operations and does what he believes is best for Green County.

 

Frank said good leaders are patient and good listeners, but sometimes have to make tough decisions.

 

Greensburg Mayor Lisle Cheatham told the group that he oversees city operations, including the fire, police, water and 911 departments.

 

Cheatham said he believes good leaders are people who listen and help the community grow and prosper.

 

The leadership group – called LOCK, which stands for Leaders of Central Kentucky – met several times during the school year for trips and other activities.

 

The program is open exclusively to eighth-grade students.

 

CMS students who participated in the CU leadership program include Abi Wiedewitsch, Arren Hash, Anna Clara Moura, Zaquan Cowan, Kameron Smith, Taylor Knight, Clark Kidwell, John Orberson, Kenzi Forbis and Tristin Faulkner.

 

Students from Green and Taylor counties also participate.
