  • ROBIN BASS/The Spencer Magnet

  • Foggy Bottom Farm is 400 acres on a bend in the Salt River. Michelle Armstrong and her husband Kevin have raised hogs, beef cattle, tobacco, corn, soybeans and hay on this fertile land that’s been in her family for three generations.

    Health issues pushed the Armstrongs to lease their farmland, but that hasn’t kept Michelle from being active in all things agriculture.

    Recently Armstrong was named vice president of the Kentucky Women in Agriculture, a 10-year-old organization dedicated to educating and providing a network for women farmers across the state.

  • Students in grades K-2 at SCES have been involved in the Health and Wellness Club, sponsored by 1st grade teacher Jennifer Durrett. The club’s focus is to teach kids healthy habits when it comes to eating and being active. They were taught how healthy choices can lead to healthier lives when they become adults. Students have learned a variety of fun activities that will keep them healthy, and they have participated in making healthy snacks that they will be able to make by themselves at home.
