A variety of original photographs from the 4-H Photography Club were displayed at the Centre on Main during Thursday afternoon’s Chamber of Commerce Luncheon.

The event gave the youth an opportunity to show off their pieces, many of which feature local landmarks, said club sponsor Kindra Jones.

Jones said that in addition to exhibiting their works at the Chamber event, she hopes students will be able to rotate the pieces through local businesses who might display the photographs. If your business would like to host a student’s piece, contact Jones at the UK Extension Office at (270) 259-3492.

Another group of exemplary kids recognized at the event were Lawler Elementary School students Matthew Davis, Ainsley Shartzer, Colton Glenn and Ella Robinson, who made a presentation about their school’s upcoming “‘Roaring to Lead’ Leadership Day.”

The December 4 event will take place from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and will include student-led presentations, conferences and question-and-answer sessions. Attendees will learn about the school’s “Leader in Me” theme, attend an assembly, and enjoy a continental breakfast.

If you wish to attend this event, please RSVP by contacting Principal Brad Vincent at (270) 259-9322.

The guest speaker at the Chamber’s monthly luncheon, which was sponsored this month by Fort Knox Federal Credit Union, was Bob Hatfield, Associate Dean of WKU’s College of Business.

Hatfield discussed the three MBA options that his institution offers, including a traditional program, an online program, and a weekend option.

Hatfield said that the WKU College of Business is excited to be working closely with local Chambers of Commerce by sponsoring our local Leadership Grayson County and offering Chamber members a $500 discount on MBA programs.
