CHS Soap Drive

The CHS Student Ambassadors are leading a semester-long Soap Drive to benefit the residents of Shady Lawn and Parkside Manor in Cynthiana. As many of you know, our own Linda Allen generously devotes much of her time to the residents of these homes.  

You can help by bringing bars of soap or other toiletries (shampoo, lotion, etc.) to the Office of Student Affairs, CTW 111. These items are part of the everyday routine for us, but to the residents of Shady Lawn and Parkside Manor, these items are a small luxury. The goal is 1,000 bars. Click here to download the flyer.

UK Brings 'Voices of Student Veterans' Alive Across Kentucky 

The transition from home to the battlefield and back home again is a long and, at times, bumpy road for our war veterans. "Voices of Student Veterans" chronicles those sometimes long journeys home in a documentary drama about the transitions of student veterans returning to the Commonwealth and a college campus. Kentuckians around the state can hear these personal stories of service as a tour of this production travels to five of the state's public universities April 4-21. Read the UKNow article.
