Dual Credit Classes at MCTC

If you watched (or even heard about) the Girls’ District Finals against Harrison County, then you already know who Jordan Doram is: the power center on the Harrison County High School girls varsity team. A senior this year, Jordan is also dual enrolled at MCTC/Licking Valley Campus. She has already successfully completed 15 credit hours on the hilltop, and she is planning to transfer these credits to a four year university.
Jordan stated that she focused on getting college started so that when she goes to a university she would be able to begin taking the classes she needs in her major. Currently it is her plan to major in a field that will enable her to work in the field of athletic training. She hopes to play college basketball.
She has been playing basketball for Harrison County for the past seven years, first as junior varsity and then varsity. Her dad is her major encourager and has helped her as she developed her skills. She also states that Kimberly Furnish is a major reason why she has been able to develop her skills.
“The Licking Valley Campus is beneficial to me because of the cheaper cost of taking general education classes,” Jordan says. “Licking Valley Campus is hands on and prepares me for after high school. My college English 101 and 102 goes more in depth than high school. It’s easier to ask more questions in smaller classes at Licking Valley Campus and this will help me adjust when I must be in larger classes at a four year university.”
Dual credit classes are offered at MCTC/Licking Valley Campus to high school juniors and seniors at half off the regular MCTC tuition. Students may take day, night, or online classes. Students may be enrolled once the pre-requisites are met.
K. Bruce Florence says, “Jordon is an excellent example of the possibilities that our high school students are offered with the presence of a college right across the street from their school. These opportunities are available and we are anxious to be able to provide them to as many students as are interested in this advancement.
For more information about dual credit and pre-requisites required stop by the hilltop or call 859-234-8626 extension 66400.

Hinton Mills hosts 31st Annual Seed Days

Flemingsburg-based farm supply business Hinton Mills hosted their 31st annual Seed Days sale and customer appreciation event last week. The week-long sale was started as a way to help area farmers pull together to book seed and fertilizer at the best possible pricing.
The event has evolved more into a way for the 96-year old business to say “thank you” to customers, while still sharing greatly discounted pricing on a wider-range of items, that now includes feed, seed, fertilizer, livestock mineral, fencing materials, pet supplies, as well as work clothes, boots and lawn & garden items. In addition to savings and customers’ socializing with other farm families, each day saw a different high school or collegiate FFA program serving food to customers.
Other highlights included a visit from the University of Kentucky Basketball’s 2nd all-time scoring leader, Kenny “Sky” Walker, live radio shows broadcast from various Hinton Mills locations, as well as two current state FFA officers stopping by to assist in the festivities.
The week concluded with Congressman Andy Barr honoring four generations of Hinton Family and their nearly 50 current employees for their continued contribution to the local community.
Hinton Mills was founded in 1918 and their locations consist of Frank L. Hinton & Son, Jabetown Mill, May’s Lick Mill and Fleming County Farm Supply.
