Miss Kentucky Visits Butler County Schools
On Thursday, March 14 North Butler Elementary Students were treated to a special presentation by Miss Kentucky, Katie Bouchard. She is an Owensboro native and a graduate of Western Kentucky University. Miss Bouchard was named Miss Kentucky this past June and one of her many roles include speaking to the school aged children about the importance of setting goals and making healthy choices in life.
In her address to the students of NBES, Bouchard covered her three steps for achieving goals. These steps include working hard and staying dedicated to the goal, living a healthy lifestyle by exercising and eating healthy foods, and having a positive attitude. She spoke on healthy “Kentucky Proud” foods that are grown right here in Kentucky. On staying dedicated, she gave a testimony of her trying for two years before finally realizing her dream of being crowned Miss Kentucky, and how she stayed focused and dedicated to it although she had failed more than once. She also had an activity involving student volunteers for a push-up contest.
Bouchard closed by taking questions from the students.
Miss Kentucky is currently touring the state speaking on behalf of Kentucky Agriculture Department about the Kentucky Proud Program. The North Butler Elementary visit comes during the 2019 National Agriculture Week on National Agriculture Day.
The visit was coordinated by Butler County Retired Teacher Becky Hankins. North Butler Elementary and Principal Josh Belcher are very appreciative of Ms. Hankins, The Kentucky Agriculture Department and Miss Kentucky for their continued support of students and their health.
