New Kentucky Civics Test

Caleb Buford, Messenger Reporter & Business Manager

November 28, 2017No Comments

On September 26th, 2017, the Kentucky Department of Education announced that the State of Kentucky passed Senate Bill 159 that states beginning in 2018, students of Kentucky high schools will be required to pass a civics test as a part to receiving their high school diploma. The test would be made by each high school’s local school board but must be created using the 100 questions found on the United States Citizenship test. There is no set standard or format to the test, all test planning and score recording is up to the local school boards. This new test affects students aiming to attain a high school diploma, making it very crucial for students to understand the purpose of the test and what to expect.

Active Shooter Crisis; How to Prepare

Caleb Buford, Messenger Reporter & Business Manager

November 28, 2017No Comments

Recently, I participated in an active shooter reenactment at the McCracken County Courthouse to help train the staff & the McCracken County Sheriff’s Department what to do in the case of an active shooter. I was there as an actor portraying a deputy that had been shot dead on the steps inside the front of the courthouse. Other students from McCracken County High School and Paducah Tilghman High School were also there portraying scared, injured, or dead citizens. During the reenactment, the men that played the shooters shot blanks to make the experience as real as possible. The screams from us, the actors, to the blank gunshots made the experience so intense, I was scared even though I was aware it was all a show. But, while this was all fake and was meant as training, these types of crimes happen much too often.
